Development Victoria

Redeveloping Wodonga's former railway precinct

Key projects and infrastructure

Development Victoria has completed a number of key infrastructure and open space projects at Junction Place to revitalise Wodonga's city centre and turn the old railway site into the new heart of central Wodonga.

This includes the creation of new key road connections and the development of new public spaces for Wodonga. 

Promenade 

The Promenade is a new public space for central Wodonga, linking the old and the new at Junction Place. Centrally located at Junction Place, the Promenade runs through the site between the historic Goods Shed and Station Building, linking these buildings to Church Street and Junction Square.  

Like Junction Square, the Promenade is available to host outdoor events and has already been the location of markets and food and wine events. It has been designed with outdoor dining on both sides and will be the hub for the food and beverage precinct proposed within Junction Place.

Construction of the Promenade began in August 2015, with Development Victoria engaging the City of Wodonga to design and deliver the space on its behalf.

The Promenade opened in February 2016.

Junction Square  

Junction Square was the first public space planned for Junction Place.  It is a significant meeting space for central Wodonga and is an integral part of the new heart of central Wodonga.

The $1.75 million Junction Square, largely funded by the Victorian Government, adjoins the realigned Elgin Boulevard and provides a link from High Street through to the broader Junction Place precinct.

Junction Square features refurbished rail infrastructure, seating and shade.

Construction of Junction Square began in November 2014, with Development Victoria engaging the City of Wodonga to design and deliver the square on its behalf.

Junction Square was opened by the Member for Northern Victoria on 28 April 2015.  

Road connections  

A number of key road infrastructure projects have already been completed at Junction Place.

Road projects completed to date include:
  • realignment of Elgin Boulevard
  • extension of Watson Street
  • extension of Smythe Street
  • upgrades to High Street
  • southern extension of Church Street.

The southern extension of Church Street creates a key north-south connection through the Junction Place development in the Wodonga CBD. The new section of road connects South Street to Elgin Boulevard along the upgraded northern section of Church Street.

The southern section of Church Street prioritises pedestrians and is able to be closed for public events.
