Your new Carrum Station opening soon
10 Dec 2019
We’re coming in hot this summer in Carrum as we gear up to open the new Carrum Station on Monday 17 February 2020.
The new modern station will make it safer and easier to get to public transport, local shops and the beach with entrances at McLeod Road and Walkers Road for improved access.
Locals will be able to access to the station from the Walkers Road entrance at a new pedestrian connection across Station Street.
Works will continue on ground floor buildings, the station car park and landscaping until mid 2020. Check out the progress and view from the new station platform in our image gallery.
Since Carrum Station closed in July 2019, we’ve installed 36 bridge piers, ten station platform beams and 64 concrete bridge beams to create the new rail bridge and station.
As we prepare to open the new Carrum Station and direct connection from McLeod Road to Nepean Highway, there will be changes to the way you travel in early 2020
Buses will replace trains on the Frankston line from Moorabbin, Frankston and Stony Point from 1am Sunday 2 February until the last train on Sunday 16 February 2020.
During this time, we’ll remove the temporary track that has been keeping Frankston line running during major works, minimising disruptions to the 40,000 people who use the Frankston Line every day. This allows us to connect the new rail bridge to the Frankston line and get the new McLeod Road connection ready.
Once the station is complete, works will start on Carrum’s $50 million revitalisation. Four new community spaces will make up more than two soccer fields of open space, including a village green, new foreshore park, town square and station garden. These works will be completed by late 2020.
We want to thank the community for their patience during major works to transform Carrum. More than 98,500 locals have given the bus a go this year and we’ve handed out over 23,000 treats from local traders and social enterprises during disruptions.
