Frankston City’s population is growing, but our infrastructure isn’t keeping up. Working with the community, Frankston City Council has costed and developed the following projects to meet the needs of our growing region.
From new and improved sports precincts at Jubilee and Centenary Parks to electrification of the Stony Point line from Frankston towards the Mornington Peninsula, these projects will create generational change in our community for years to come.

Electrification of the Stony Point rail line from Frankston to Hastings
Frankston City Council and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council support the vital electrification of the existing Stony Point rail line from Frankston to Hastings
The electrification of the Stony Point line, including relocation of Leawarra Station within Frankston’s Health and Education Precinct, a new Langwarrin Station and station upgrades along the line with park and ride facilities will:
- Significantly increase commuter car parking along the line, reducing congestion at Frankston, Kananook and Seaford Stations
- Deliver metro services within reach of an additional 30,000 residents from Frankston to Langwarrin alone
- Provide increased frequency of metro services for residents and visitors from the Mornington Peninsula to Melbourne CBD
Both Councils are asking Federal and Victorian Governments to support building this vital public transport infrastructure as a priority.
Regional tennis and gymnastics at Centenary Park
The Frankston Hospital expansion requires land currently occupied by Frankston Tennis Club.
This means the Club’s rich 150 year history and over 300 participants face potential closure if they don’t find a new home.
Council has developed plans for a new regional facility at Centenary Park, combining tennis and gymnastics featuring:
- 16 hard tennis courts including four that meet International Tennis Federation standards
- Four hot shot courts for junior tennis development
- 1,500sqm gymnastics hall and training pit
- Spectator viewing for tennis and gymnastics
Council has committed $11 million to commence works. We are asking for equal contributions of $8.05 million from Federal and Victorian Governments.
Expanded Jubilee Park Indoor Stadium
Netball and basketball are so popular in Frankston City that Jubilee Park Indoor Stadium is at capacity and needs room to grow.
Council has developed plans for a new indoor stadium catering to basketball, netball, cricket and football, ready to host major events and welcome more players.
An expanded regional indoor facility at Jubilee Park will feature:
- Six multipurpose indoor courts
- 1,000 seat show court
- Elite training facilities for multiple sports
- State-of-the-art cafe, community meeting and function rooms
Council has committed $10.6 million to commence works. We are asking for equal contributions of $10 million from Federal and Victorian Governments.
Continued revitalisation of Frankston's city centre
Further city centre revitalisation is needed to create new job opportunities, greater accessibility to government, health and education services and to boost the local economy resulting in future private sector investments such as five star hotels and city centre housing.
There are a number of projects that will further revitalise Frankston’s city centre, including:
- Rail electrification from Frankston to Hastings
- Car parking solutions (including the rail electrification)
- Smart City initiatives such as intelligent bins and smart parking apps
- Creation of a health, education and research precinct
- City centre renewal, including aligning government services in a central location (catalyst development)
We’re asking for Federal and Victorian Governments to partner with Council on these projects, including completing a business case for a catalyst development.
Council has undertaken further community consultation from December 2018 to February 2019 including an online survey and numerous community drop-in sessions with project officers available to answer questions.
Following advice from initial project investigations, Council is undertaking additional environmental studies before determining the status of this project.
