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 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.

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 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.
Customers should allow up to 15 minutes' extra travel time. For journey planning, visit the PTV website or call 1800 800 007.
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.
Pedestrian access restrictions
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.
