Oakleigh Station Upgrade works to start
22 Aug 2019
Regular users of Oakleigh Station will soon benefit from better access and improved facilities as works begin to give the station precinct a makeover.
The Oakleigh Station Upgrade includes a modern upgrade of the existing pedestrian underpass, including reconfiguring ramps and providing new lifts, as well as new lighting, CCTV and canopies to provide better protection from the weather.
The redesign will see commuters also benefit from direct access to city-bound trains from Haughton Road, which will reduce congestion in the underpass.
The station itself will remain open and regular services running during these works, which are set to start this month and the station ready for commuters to enjoy by mid-2020.
There will be some temporary changes to station access and car parking during construction, with extra signage and station staff on hand to help get people where they need to go.
In partnership with the Level Crossing Removal Project and Metro Trains Melbourne, a contract to complete this project has been awarded to an Alliance comprising Lendlease, CPB Contractors, WSP and Aurecon.
This team has the knowledge and experience to deliver this project, having already successfully removed nine level crossings and constructed five new elevated stations between Caulfield and Dandenong.
