The new Wachusett Station includes new full-train length, accessible high-level platforms, new canopies, passenger shelters, benches, windscreens, signage, train approach warning system, variable message signs, and platform lighting. The station will be equipped with closed circuit television (CCTV) video surveillance cameras, and police emergency call boxes.
