Notification

Carnegie Station: Temporary station closure from Monday 23 January to Sunday, 12 March 2017

Added: 16 December 2016

Due to works as part of the Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project, Carnegie Station will be temporarily closed from 1am on Monday 23 January until the last service on Sunday, 12 March 2017.

Initially the plan was to close the station for eight weeks from Monday, 16 January 2017 to safely undertake these works. A review of the construction program has enabled the closure period to be reduced to seven weeks.

Works will include piling, construction of elevated rail and construction of the new station. During this time, trains will run express through the closed station, with buses replacing trains between Caulfield and Murrumbeena stations. 

Journey times may be extended by up to 15 minutes.

Please note: Carnegie Station will also be affected by long-term car park closures and changes to pedestrian access until mid-2018. More information on those changes can be found here.
