South Yarra Station Upgrade

South Yarra Station Project Toorak Road station entrance

We're upgrading South Yarra Station, one of Melbourne's busiest stations, as we also prepare our network for the Metro Tunnel.

The South Yarra Station Upgrade will create a safer and more accessible space, with improvements to the entrance area and amenities, a new canopy over the station entrance and an accessible tram stop on Toorak Road.

Tram stop upgrade

A new level-access tram stop is now open on Toorak Road. This final stage of work creates a level-access tram stop that will fully integrate with Melbourne's expanding fleet of low-floor trams. The new stop also incluces new dedicated bike lanes to allow cyclists to safely travel past the tram stop and bike facilities on both sides of Toorak Road.

To complete the upgrade to the stop there will finishing works taking place in the coming weeks.

Station upgrade

Stage one and two of our major works to relieve congestion and improve accessibility at South Yarra Station are now complete.

The upgrade will provide more space for passengers with a new concourse area double its previous size, more myki gates, improved lighting, and an upgraded accessible ticket window. A new canopy over the station entrance provides more shelter for people outside the station on Toorak Road.

The completed station upgrade works include:

  • widening the station entrance on Toorak Road to reduce congestion
  • constructing a new canopy over the station entrance to provide more shelter for people outside on Toorak Road
  • refurbishment of the concourse area with improved lighting, and finishes
  • upgrading ticketing and staff office facilities
  • increasing the number of myki gates and improving their layout
  • upgrading customer wayfinding.

Yarra Street - trialling new traffic conditions at the Toorak Road intersection

From Friday 18 June 2021, we will introduce changes to traffic turning movements at the intersection of Yarra Street and Toorak Road as part of a 12-month trial.

From this date, vehicles will only be able to turn left out of Yarra Street onto Toorak Road. The trial will ban right turns in and out of Yarra Street, as well as the left turn in.

Provide your feedback on the intersection trial. The consultation will remain open until 18 June 2022.
