the spotswood workshops
The Spotswood Railway "Way & Works - Workshops" is the last remaining building of a once large complex constructed in the 1920s to support the Victorian Railway industry. The Workshops closed on 23 December 1980.
The site has social and historical significance to the local community and many envision that the building and surrounding land can be utilised as a public space. Plans are underway to work with the owner, VicTrack, to secure a lease or purchase of the land.
The Spotswood Railway Workshops site is located at 561-569 Melbourne Road, Spotswood, Victoria, Australia.
