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 Poath 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

Oakleigh Station car park closure and changes to shared use path

7:00pm Thursday 13 October to early December 2016

The Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project  will provide new and improved rail infrastructure which includes power and signalling upgrades along the 72 kilometres of rail line, from Southern Cross Station to Pakenham and Cranbourne.

Oakleigh Station Portman Street car park will temporarily close in stages on the dates shown below so we can begin work to dig trenches for services cables:

Stage 1 from 7:00pm Thursday 13 October to 4:30am Monday 7 November 2016.

Stage 2 full car park closure from 7:00pm Saturday 15 October to 4:30am Monday 17 October 2016.

Stage 3 from 7:00pm Saturday 5 November to 4:30am Monday 28 November 2016.

Stage 4 full car park closure 7:00pm Friday 11 November to 4:30am Monday 14 November 2016.

Although the staged closures will begin at 7:00pm, please note the following:

  • It will be possible to exit with your vehicle until midnight on the day of the closure
  • If your car is left in the car park beyond midnight, we may be required to relocate your vehicle within the station car park to ensure no damage is caused
  • If your car is left in the car park after the 48-hour notification it will be relocated to a secure facility outside the station car park.

During construction, rail customers are advised that the car park at Huntingdale Station has been extended to provide 80 additional car spaces. Station car park users are encouraged to plan their travel and consider alternative transport to nearby stations and offset car park locations.

These works will involve a temporary relocation of the Oakleigh Station taxi rank on Portman Street from Friday 14 October to Monday 14 November. The shared use path from the eastern end of Oakleigh Station car park will also close from Sunday 16 October to early December 2016.

For your safety, please observe any signage and instructions put in place during these works.
