Rebuilding Murrumbeena Station
The Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project is removing nine level crossings, rebuilding five stations and creating new open spaces on the Cranbourne-Pakenham rail line.
Murrumbeena Station will be rebuilt in its current location as an elevated railway station. The new station at Murrumbeena will be equipped with the following facilities:
- stairs, escalators and two lifts to improve accessibility and pedestrian flow
- two station access points
- large sections of covered platform
- ambulant accessible public toilets for customer use during station operation hours
- baby change facilities for customer use during station operation hours
- hearing loops in waiting areas and on platforms
- commuter parking including disability parking and a number of drop-off zones
- parkiteer facilities (secure bicycle parking cages) and bicycle hoops, located close to shared use paths and station entrances
- new bus bays and taxi ranks
- CCTV cameras and state-of-the-art Protective Service Officer (PSO) facilities
- new public information displays.
How has community feedback been incorporated into the design?
Changes to the station precinct design include:
- reduction in the height of the station canopy by 1.8 metres
- addition of a second entry/exit point to improve access and pedestrian flow
- improved layout of open space below the station platforms
- inclusion of escalators
- improved amenity, such as public toilets and security.
Key architectural elements from the old station buildings – such as the steel canopies and trusses – have been salvaged and stored. We are working to incorporate these elements into the designs for the new station precinct and community open spaces.
