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 include improvements to the entrance area, layout and amenities. A new canopy over the entrance and a new tram stop on Toorak Road.

Station entrance

As part of stage one works, we will widen the station entrance on Toorak Road to make it easier for people to move in and out of the station and into the surrounding residential, business and shopping precinct.

Inside the entrance we will install more myki gates, which will help people move through the station more easily and reduce crowding. We are also updating the ticket window to make it more accessible for passengers who use a mobility aid.

Station entrance works include:

  • widening the station entrance on Toorak Road to reduce congestion
  • 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.

Construction of the station entrance is scheduled from October 2020 to March 2021.

Upcoming works

As part of stage two works we will start construction on the new canopy over the station’s entrance to provide more shelter for people entering and exiting the station.

Our final stage will include the construction of an accessible tram stop on Toorak Road that will be fully integrated with Melbourne’s expanding fleet of low-floor trams. This will also include new dedicated bike lanes to allow cyclists to safely travel past the tram stop and bike facilities on both sides of Toorak Road.

We will continue to keep the community informed of upcoming works.
