Concept designs released for new Merinda Park Station
09 Dec 2019
Better connectivity is central to a complete rebuild of Merinda Park Station, amid works to fully duplicate the Cranbourne line.
The station is being rebuilt with two platforms and modern facilities.
Concept designs for the new station feature better weather protection and a new direct entry point from the eastern side of the tracks.
There’ll be a new pedestrian underpass to link both sides of the station, allowing the existing pedestrian level crossing to be removed.
The main station entrance will also be moved to a more central location - meaning no more long walks from car to platform.
We’re keen to hear feedback from passengers and locals about the concept designs, particularly on usability of the station precinct for people arriving at the station by car, bike, bus or train.
Early works on the new station are expected to start next year, coinciding with track duplication works between Dandenong and Cranbourne. Both will be completed in 2023.
Meanwhile, other aspects of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade – including designs for the level crossing removal at Greens Road – continue to progress.
The full upgrade, which will see the removal of every level crossing along the Cranbourne line, will be completed by 2025.
