Your Oakleigh Station is being upgraded

Works will take place between August 2019 and August 2020.

Users of Oakleigh Station will benefit from better access and improved facilities as works give the station precinct a makeover. With improvements to safety and accessibility, users of the station can look forward to:

  • easier access to platforms, with a new forecourt providing direct access to city-bound trains from Haughton Road
  • a landscaped forecourt and platform entrance on the Portman Street side of the station
  • a completely rebuilt underpass to bring it up to modern standards
  • new lifts and redesigned ramps for both platforms, making the station easier for everyone to move around
  • improved lighting throughout the station and new CCTV to improve safety
  • new shelters to help protect people from the weather.

While works are underway, around 90 car spaces around the station will be unavailable from August 2019 to mid-2020. 140 extra car parks will be available at Huntingdale and Holmesglen.

There will be no changes to train services while the upgrade takes place. Find out more at Oakleigh Station Update project page.

What to expect: August – September 2019

Initial works include the establishment of a work site, which will be installed next to the station building off Portman Street.

Approximately 90 car park spaces around the station will be unavailable for the duration of the upgrade.

  • Most works will take place during business hours, to minimise impacts to residents
  • Locals can expect low to medium noise levels from hand-held tools and machinery
  • Cranes and machinery will be on site to install barriers and site sheds
  • Signs will be in place for pedestrian detours
  • Traffic barriers and hoarding will provide safe areas for workers and the community
  • Traffic flows around the works area will be managed
  • Noise, dust, and vibration will be managed to minimise impacts on nearby residents and businesses

If you have any questions about the upgrades to Oakleigh Station, please contact the Community Information Line on 1800 105 105 or contact us via email at

Commuters using the new Oakleigh station will benefit from major upgrades to the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines that will result in turn up and go train services.
