General Motors

General Motors station is the most recent station to close on the suburban rail network which occurred during 2002. The station was originally built to serve an adjacent Holden car factory, with a dedicated access provided through a gate from a pedestrian overpass. The station is located in the middle of an industrial area however there is no access provided to the general public. Although the car factory closed during the 1990s, amazingly the station remained in use with only a couple of trains stopping their each day to coincide with the former changes of shift. Records showed that up to 11 people per day continued to use the station, despite the gate to the former facotry being locked and no other public access provided. The station buildings, pedestrian overpass and former signal box remian in place hoever are no longer in use.
