Station designs announced for Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach
09 Dec 2019
The three new stations are part of the Edithvale, Chelsea, and Bonbeach level crossing removal projects, which will see five level crossings removed as part of the government’s $3 billion upgrade along the Frankston line.
The safe, accessible stations will reflect the coastal look and feel of the area and will maximise natural light to the platforms – delivering on feedback from the community on the design of the stations. The construction will use natural materials and colours to complement the local communities.
Each of the modern new stations has been designed to enhance connections around the area for commuters, pedestrians and cyclists with local activity hubs, important community facilities and the beach.
The connection with traditional owners of the land is recognised in the station designs, with woven canopies representing the area’s Indigenous textiles and craft.
Each station will have a customised colour palette so it can be easily identified by passing train passengers.

Sections of the Frankston line will be lowered, removing level crossings at Edithvale Road in Edithvale, Station Street/Bondi Road, Bonbeach and Argyle Avenue, Chelsea Road and Swanpool Avenue in Chelsea.
The contract for works has been awarded to an alliance consisting of Lendlease, Acciona Coleman Rail, WSP and Metro Trains Melbourne.
The same alliance has worked on a number of level crossing removals along the Frankston line, including at Seaford, Carrum, Cheltenham and Mentone.
