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.

Local history

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.
