The Caulfield to Dandenong: Level Crossing Removal Project is removing nine level crossings and rebuilding five stations. The Cranbourne-Pakenham 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.

Clayton Station Haughton Road car park will temporarily close from 7:00pm Friday 2 September to 5:00am Monday 5 September 2016. Although this area will be closed from 7:00pm, it will be possible to exit with your vehicle after this time until midnight Friday 2 September.

Clayton Station Carinish Road car park will temporarily close until mid-2018 so works can begin to remove level crossings, construct elevated tracks and rebuild the station.

The closure of Carinish Road car park will commence from 7:00pm Friday 2 September. Please note the following vehicle exit options:

  • ­It will be possible to exit with your vehicle until midnight Friday 2 September.
  • ­If your car is left in the car park from Saturday 3 September to Sunday 4 September, we may be required to relocate your vehicle within the station car park to ensure no damage is caused.
  • ­If your car is left in the car park after the 48-hour notification period (11:00pm Sunday 4 September), it will be relocated to a secure facility outside the station car park.

Disability Permit parking will be retained and relocated near the station entrance.

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. In addition to this, approximately 160 spaces will be available from 3 September at the Clayton Station, Haughton Road car park. There will also be further car spaces available at a later stage in early October.

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. From 7:00am to 5:00pm Saturday 3 September and Sunday 4 September there will be a temporary footpath diversion on both sides of the Clayton Station level crossing. Please follow diversion signs in place on Clayton 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.

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.

Clayton Station Heritage Permit Application

The Level Crossing Removal Project: Caulfield to Dandenong team recognises the significance of Clayton Station's heritage listing.

Clayton Station is unique because it is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register and is subject to a Local Council Heritage Overlay.

Heritage Victoria is now reviewing the project team's application to preserve, relocate and refurbish the only remaining heritage building located on Platform 2, as well as construct a new station and demolish the current station.

The Heritage Victoria application for Clayton Station (permit application number P24958) was available for public viewing and comment from 22 June to 6 July 2016.  This public exhibition is now closed.
