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.

Overview

The Grange 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

Carnegie Station closures

Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park stations will be transformed into modern transport interchanges, with the capacity to manage thousands of passengers daily, improving safety, reducing congestion, providing upgraded station facilities and creating new community spaces for people to enjoy.

Carnegie and Murrumbeena stations are now temporarily closed for piling works, removal of station buildings and installation of temporary buildings. These stations will re-open the first service on Monday 26 September.

Carnegie Station will then close for a second time from early November to complete piling works on the station platforms and within the station precinct.

During this time, trains will run express through the closed stations with shuttle buses operating between Caulfield and Hughesdale stations, stopping at Carnegie and Murrumbeena stations.

Customers for Carnegie Station are encouraged to change at Caulfield or Hughesdale stations to board the train replacement bus to Carnegie Station.

Car park closures

Carnegie Station Morton Avenue car park is now closed until mid-2018 so we can remove the Koornang Road level crossing, construct elevated tracks and rebuild the station.

Disability Permit parking will be retained within the station entrance.

To ensure there is no loss of parking for rail customers during construction, East Malvern Station and Holmesglen Station car parks have been extended to provide approximately 340 additional car spaces.

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

Please note the following permanent changes to footpath access around Carnegie Station until mid-2018:

  • The pedestrian rail crossing between Carnegie Station car park and Woorayl Street, near Chestnut Street is closed. Please use detour via Koornang Road.
  • The footpath from Carnegie Station to Hewitts Road has been permanently removed. Please detour via Morton Avenue, Shepparson Avenue, Jersey Parade and Tranmere Avenue.
  • The pedestrian level crossing on the western side of Koornang Road will temporally close from 7:00am to 5:00pm Saturday 3 September and Sunday 4 September. Please follow diversion signs to the eastern side of Koornang Road.

Traffic management measures will be in place during peak periods for community safety.

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.
