We’re busy removing level crossings

As part of Victoria's Big Build's $3 billion upgrade of the Frankston Line, we're removing 20 level crossings and building 13 new stations, to improve safety, reduce congestion and allow more trains to run more often.

From Edithvale to Bonbeach we're removing five dangerous and congested level crossings by lowering the Frankston Line and building three new stations at Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach. We're creating a more direct road network that will improve traffic flow, reduce congestion and make it easier to get in and out of the local area.

Buses replace trains on sections of the Frankston and Stony Point lines from

8.30pm Monday 13 September to last service Sunday 31 October.

Extra information to help you plan ahead

Station closure and community shuttle bus stop locations: The shuttle will stop at replacement bus stops between Mordialloc and Carrum as well as Berry Avenue, Golden Avenue, Swanpool Avenue and Lochiel Avenue.

Accessibility: Most train replacement and shuttle buses are low floor to accommodate passengers with accessibility requirements. If a passenger cannot board a train replacement or shuttle bus service, alternative transport can be arranged.

Car park changes: Temporary car park closures and changes to pedestrian access will affect stations along the line during the works.

PTV route bus stop closures: There are changes to buses around Edithvale Station and Chelsea Station. Visit our disruptions page for additional bus stop changes during the works.

Road disruptions and level crossing closures: There will be road and traffic disruptions on Nepean Highway and Station Street in Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach.
