Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach station closures

Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach stations closed on Sunday 25 July.

From 8.30pm Monday 13 September, buses will replace trains on sections of the Frankston and Stony Point lines.

Pedestrian crossings update

During the closure of the pedestrian crossings a free community shuttle bus is operating to connect locals to train services and local shops. The shuttle bus will run as a loop service, with Mordialloc-bound stops located on Nepean Highway and Carrum-bound stops located on Station Street.

The shuttle bus will run until pedestrian access opens at the new road connections.

Shuttle bus operating hours and frequency

From 11.59pm Monday 16 August, a curfew will be in place in metropolitan Melbourne from 9pm to 5am every night. The only reasons to leave home during the curfew are for authorised work, or urgent medical care and caregiving. Authorised workers must have a permit to travel. Outside of these reasons, you must stay at home.

While the curfew is in place, Friday and Saturday Night Network services are not running. This includes rail replacement and shuttle bus services.

The shuttle bus operating times has been adjusted in line with the paused Night Network services and will now run as follows.

The shuttle will run daily from:

  • Monday to Friday: 4am to 1.30am
  • Saturday: 4.45am to 1.30am
  • Sunday: 6.30am to 1.30am

The shuttle will run to a 5-10-minute frequency; however, please note after 9pm daily and from first bus to 9am on weekends the shuttle will run to a 20-30minute frequency.

Please keep in mind that the frequency is subject to local traffic conditions.

Shuttle estimated journey times

  • The estimated half-loop journey time from Mordialloc Station to Carrum Station is around 25 minutes.
  • The estimated total full loop journey time is around 55 minutes, this includes a 3-minute layover at Mordialloc Station and a 2-minute layover at Carrum Station.
