Caulfield to Dandenong area 2 Community update – November 2017

01 Nov 2017


Major works are underway to remove level crossings at Clayton and Centre roads and rebuild Clayton station.

What we’ve been doing

We’ re continuing to meet major milestones in Clayton. Our biggest accomplishment last month was completing the installation of super T beams. This was no small task,
with a total of 172 beams installed. We’ve also installed the remaining barriers along the elevated structure.

New Clayton Station

Construction of the new Clayton Station is well underway. We’ve completed the hollow core deck and have begun ground level station preparation works including the foundation works for station lifts, staircases and escalators. Next month we’ll continue the ground level preparation works for the new station facilities. We' will also start to remove scaffolding at the site now that the hollow core deck and the installation of barrier is complete.


We’re working hard to minimise disruptions for residents, commuters, local businesses and shoppers wherever possible. However, there will be some disruptions
including the following:


The following traffic changes will occur at Clayton Road, Clayton from 10:30pm to 7:30am on the following nights:

  • Wednesday 29 November 2017 (southbound closure only)

  • Tuesday 5 December 2017 (full closure).
