The Level Crossing Removal Project: Caulfield to Dandenong 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.
The Murrumbeena 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.

Murrumbeena 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 and Murrumbeena stations will temporarily close from 1:00am Monday 29 August until the first service on Monday 26 September 2016 for piling works, removal of station buildings and installation of temporary buildings.
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 Murrumbeena Station are encouraged to change at Caulfield or Hughesdale stations to board the Train replacement bus to Murrumbeena 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 closures
Neerim Road and Railway Parade car parks are now closed until mid-2018 so we can remove the Murrumbeena Road level crossing, construct elevated tracks and rebuild the station.
Disability Permit parking will be retained and has been relocated within the station precinct in the car park at the corner of Murrumbeena Parade and Railway Parade.
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 342 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.
The map below shows alternative train stations and parking availability, as well as bus, tram and bicycle routes within 15 minutes of Murrumbeena Station.
For your safety, please observe any signage and instructions put in place during these works.
Pedestrian access restrictions
The Murrumbeena Station pedestrian bridge has been removed. A pedestrian detour is in place via Murrumbeena Road. Traffic management will be in place during peak periods for community safety.
