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.

Overview

The Koornang 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 closure

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 Station will temporarily close from early November to complete piling works on the station platforms and within the station precinct.

Car park closure

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 and relocated near the station entrance.

To ensure there is no loss of car 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

The pedestrian rail crossing is closed between Carnegie Station car park and Woorayl Street near Chestnut Street. A pedestrian detour is in place via Koornang Road.

The footpath from Carnegie Station to Hewitts Road is now closed. A pedestrian detour is in place via Morton Avenue, Shepparson Avenue, Jersey Parade and Tranmere Avenue.

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.
