Frankston Line works

As part of Victoria's Big Build, 20 dangerous level crossings will be removed, and 13 new stations built on the Frankston Line. The $4 billion upgrade will improve safety, reduce congestion and allow more trains to run, more often.
The Glen Huntly Level Crossing Removal Project will see the level crossings on Glen Huntly Road and Neerim Road removed with the rail lines lowered into a one-kilometre trench under the roads.  

A new station is being built at Glen Huntly and will feature lowered platforms to improve safety and accessibility. The station will also have better connections to public transport, shops and community spaces. These two dangerous and congested level crossings have been fast-tracked for removal, with early construction works underway to remove the boom gates by 2023 and finish the job in 2024.

From 8 July until late August, express trains on the Frankston Line will be replaced with trains stopping at all stations. This approach will minimise disruption for passengers by avoiding a lengthy closure of the Frankston line while still allowing crews to work safely on the train tracks.

There will be up to 10-minutes increase in journey times.

Changes to your Frankston Line timetable

From Friday 8 July until late August, express trains on the Frankston Line will be replaced with trains stopping all stations while we work on the Neerim Road and Glen Huntly Road level crossing removals in Glen Huntly.

This minimises disruption for passengers by avoiding a lengthy closure of the Frankston Line, while crews work on the track. There will be up to a 10 minute increase in journey times.

Trains and connecting buses, trams and Stony Point Line trains will be maintained throughout.

Trains will not be stopping at platform 3 for all stations between Glenhuntly to Moorabbin. Frankston bound (from City) trains will depart from platform 2 while city bound trains will continue to use platform 1.
