Construction work to get rid of the level crossing at Balcombe Road in Mentone will begin in late 2018.
The crossing will be removed by lowering the rail line into a trench and rebuilding the road at the current level. A new Mentone Station will be built as part of the project.
The community has made clear that keeping the main station building on the city-bound platform in its current position is important and has been a key focus of the design development. We plan for this building to be retained and repurposed as part of the new station.

Over the course of May and June a construction blitz is underway to rebuild the new Frankston Station and remove the level crossing at Skye/Overton Road in Frankston.
Across the Frankston line, work to remove level crossings is well underway. Three are already gone and Skye/Overton Road in Frankston is under construction, to be completed in 2018.
