Cheltenham Station car park closure until mid-2021

To enable level crossing works to take place, Cheltenham Station car park will close from Thursday 8 August 2019 until mid-2021.

Cheltenham Station will remain open until early 2020 and trains will continue to run as scheduled. Accessible parking will be maintained at Cheltenham Station.

There will also be pedestrian and cyclist detours around the Cheltenham station precinct during this time.

Mentone Station car park will also close from Thursday 8 August to late 2020.

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

Alternative all-day parking

Sections of Westfield Southland Shopping Centre car parks

There will be 284 free all-day parking spaces for rail passengers over two locations at Westfield Southland. One is in the main shopping centre car park just 30 metres from Southland Station (entry between 4.30am and 8am on weekdays only) and the other is on Karen Street/Matthieson Street, a seven-minute walk from Southland Station.

Temporary reduction of alternative rail passenger parking during Christmas period

Please note the blue parking area off Bay Road will be unavailable to rail passengers between 10 December 2019 and 1 January 2020. This is to maximise parking for Westfield Southland customers during the busy Christmas and New Year period. Rail passengers will still be able to access the 115 free all-day parking spaces on Karen Street/Matthieson Street (marked in red).
