The Level Crossing Removal Project Caulfield to Dandenong 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 Heatherton Road level crossing removal is part of the Caulfield to Dandenong project, which involves removing nine level crossings and rebuilding five new stations at Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park.
Learn more about the Caulfield to Dandenong project.
From Saturday 27 May 2017, you can visit our Information Hub in the Noble Park Station car park, Douglas Street and chat to us about the level crossing removal works and how the project will revitalise Noble Park.
The Information Hub includes a viewing platform offering great views of the construction works. Visitors can try our virtual reality goggles which show an incredible 360° image of how the new Noble Park Station will look upon completion.
The Information Hub opening hours are:
- Tuesdays 9:00am to 5:00pm
- Wednesdays 3:00pm to 7:00pm
- every second Saturday 9:00am to 12noon.
A project of the size and complexity of the Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project involves a considerable amount of design work to arrive at the finished product. The project is split into 160 individual design packages. We prioritise these packages and progressively pass them onto the construction team when complete. Staging the design in this way is typical of a major infrastructure project and allows us to start and finish sooner. Check out our Project Design fact sheet for more information.

The maps below show an aerial view of the design. These maps were updated in January 2017 to reflect pier placement and elevated structure height. They will be progressively updated as the design develops. To ensure they are viewable on mobiles, tablets and desktops, we've split the images into sections.

Station precinct changes
Work has started to remove the Heatherton Road level crossing and rebuild the Noble Park Station. This has involved the following changes to the station precinct which came into effect from mid-October 2016:
- Changes to the way you enter and exit Platform 2.
- Temporary waiting room with CCTV and customer help point and safety zone on the platform*
- Relocation of myki machines and myki readers to the temporary station entrance.
- Pedestrian access changes at the underpass which will remain Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant.
- Width of Platform will be reduced but will remain Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant.
* Protective Services Officers will continue to patrol the station daily from 6:00pm until the last service.
While accessibility will be maintained, customers with special needs are encouraged to call the Community Information Line on 1800 762 667 to discuss specific requirements.
Car park closure
Noble Park Station Mons Parade car park is now closed until mid-2018 so we can start works to remove level crossings, construct elevated tracks and rebuild the station.
Noble Park Station Douglas Street car park is partially closed (up to 12 car spaces), from Wednesday 17 May to mid-2018.
To ensure there is no loss of parking for rail customers during construction, the car park at Sandown Park has been extended to provide approximately 166 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
Heatherton Road pedestrian level crossing (south side) is closed until late-May 2017. Please detour via the pedestrian crossing on the northern side of Heatherton Road or via the underpass at Noble Park Station. Please follow traffic controls in place.
Following the reopening of the pedestrian level crossing on the southern side, Heatherton Road pedestrian level crossing (north side) will then permanently close from late-May 2017 until mid-2018. Please detour via the pedestrian crossing on the southern side of Heatherton Road. Please follow traffic controls in place.
These closure dates are subject to change. 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.
