Located on the Deer Park-West Werribee line in Victoria, Australia, Wyndham Vale train station is brand new and is located in the newly named suburb Manor Lakes in the western suburbs of Melbourne.
The station was a long time in the making as the popular Werribee train station was overrun with commuters and it was getting very difficult for anybody to get a park.
Services from the station commenced on 21 June 2015 and have been running since. The station is very popular with residents of Manor Lakes and also residents of surrounding suburbs who travel to the new station rather than the overcrowded stations which used to be their only option.
Travel between Wyndham Vale station and Southern Cross takes only 35-40 minutes, making it fast and a convenient way to travel into the city and home again.
The station has 800 car parks, CCTV, myki machines, a lift, hearing loop, a small cafe/kiosk serving hot and cold food and beverages (set hours, please see the kiosk at the station).
It also is a manned station, with staff in the office to help with inquiries and also security doing regular patrols during peak hours. There are disabled parks, taxi ranks and bus stops making the station very handy and with most things you might need despite it being a small station.
According to online resources:
Wyndham Vale has two side platforms. It is served by V/Line Geelong and Warrnambool services.
