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 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.

Construction impacts

Car park closures

Full car park closures: 31 July 2016 to mid-2018

From 31 July to mid-2018, Murrumbeena Station Neerim Road and Railway Parade commuter car parks will close so we can remove the Murrumbeena Road level crossing, construct elevated tracks and rebuild the station. This will transform Murrumbeena Station into modern transport interchanges, with the capacity to manage thousands of passengers daily.

Station car parks will close from 11:00pm Saturday 30 July. However, it will be possible to exit with your vehicle after this time until 11:00pm Monday 1 August. To ensure no damage is caused to vehicles that remain in the car park, after the 48-hour notification period, these vehicles will be relocated.

To offset the temporary loss of car spaces at these stations we will be constructing additional car parking at these stations:

  • Holmesglen Station: 170 additional spaces. Opening 30 July 2016*
  • East Malvern Station: 172 additional spaces. Opening stage 1, 30 July 2016* and stage 2, 7 August 2016*

* Weather dependant

During construction, station car park users are encouraged to plan their travel and consider alternative transport to nearby stations and offset car park locations. Disability Permit parking will be retained and relocated within the vicinity of the station.

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.

We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we carry out these important works.

Update: Rail Café – 1a Railway Parade Murrumbeena

The Rail Café is a prominent business in the heart of the Murrumbeena Station precinct. From 6:00am onwards Darren at the Rail Café serves coffee and delicious food to hundreds of people on their daily commute. The construction layout now means that while we are undertaking level crossing removal works, the Rail Café will remain open for business in its current location and won't need to be moved during construction. A win for everyone getting a coffee from Darren on their way to work. Be sure to pop in for a visit!
