Oakleigh Station upgrade
30 Oct 2018
Level crossing removal workers are set to assist with upgrade works to Oakleigh Station in Melbourne’s south east, with works set to commence in coming months.
The upgrade – which follows the construction of five new elevated stations along the Caulfield to Dandenong corridor – will make Oakleigh Station more accessible and user friendly.
A key feature of the upgrade will be the construction of a new landscaped forecourt and the reconfiguration of tracks on the southern side. This will give passengers direct access to city-bound trains from Haughton Road.
Lighting and CCTV will be added throughout the station - including the new forecourt, platforms and the station's underpass, which will also be made deeper. Lifts will be installed, while ramps will also be re-designed to meet Australian disability standards.
More myki gates will be added to speed up passenger flow, while other improvements will include improved canopies over north and south side ramps, and a refreshed waiting room. The upgrade will also allow for the restoration of an original station building facade on the north side.
The Oakleigh Station upgrade is expected to take around 12 months to complete.
