The Caulfield to Dandenong: Level Crossing Removal Project is removing nine level crossings and rebuilding five stations. The Pakenham-Cranbourne train line is Melbourne's busiest and is crossed by some of our most congested roads, with boom gates down for up to 82 minutes during the morning peak.


The Clayton Road level crossing removal is part of the Caulfield to Dandenong project, which involves removing nine level crossings, rebuilding five new stations at Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park.

Construction impacts

Car park closure

We are transforming Clayton Station into a modern transport interchange, with the capacity to manage thousands of passengers daily.

  • From 5:30am Friday 23 September to 5:00am Monday 26 September 2016, 25 on-street car spaces will close at Clayton Station Haughton Road car park (opposite Pullyn Street) for the delivery of materials for weekend works.
  • From 7:00pm Friday 23 September to 5:00am Monday 26 September 2016 there will be a full closure of Clayton Station Haughton Road car park. Although this car park will be closed from 7:00pm, it will be possible to exit with your vehicle after this time until midnight Friday 23 September. Disability Permit parking has been retained and relocated near the station entrance.

Clayton Station Carinish Road car park is now closed until mid-2018 to allow works to remove level crossings, construct elevated tracks and rebuild the station.

To ensure there is no loss of parking for rail customers during construction, the car park at Huntingdale Station has been extended to provide 80 additional car spaces and 160 additional car spaces are available at Clayton Station on Haughton Road.

During construction, station car park users are encouraged to plan their travel and consider alternative transport to nearby stations and offset car park locations.

Pedestrian access changes

The shared user path located on the south side of Carinish Road, between Flora Road and Madeleine Road is now closed until mid-2018. This is to enable safe access to the rail corridor for construction of the new elevated rail structure over Clayton Road. Detour signs are in place at either end of the closure directing pedestrians and cyclists to cross to the north side of Carinish Road.

The Haughton Road footpath extending from the end of the car park, between Pullyn Street and Collier Road is now closed until mid-2018. The area is fenced off and the detour is on the south side of Haughton Road.

The pedestrian level crossing on the western side of Clayton Road will temporarily close between 7:00am and 5:00pm on Saturday 24 September and Sunday 25 September. A pedestrian diversion will be in place.

For your safety, please observe any signage and instructions put in place during these works.

We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we carry out these important works.
