Southland Station

Cost

$21 million

Timeframe

Start: July 2016

Finish: Second half 2017

Project update

Construction of the new Southland Station is well underway and on track to be completed by the end of 2017.
There is still plenty of work to be done over the next few months before the station opens.
Much of this work will consist of final touches to the station and will involve the use of small hand tools. This means local residents will notice a reduction in visible construction activity, and noise levels from associated works.
Normal working hours will continue between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. From Friday 11 August, the project team will no longer work on Saturdays.
Please note that unplanned and other works may be carried out on the Frankston line by other projects or as part of regular maintenance and renewal programs.

Project description

Southland Station will be located on the Frankston line between Highett and Cheltenham stations.

The new station has been designed to be modern, safe and accessible for all members of the community and will include the following features:

  • ramp and stair access to both platforms
  • a pedestrian underpass
  • accessible public toilets
  • seating and shelter on the platforms
  • CCTV cameras on both platforms
  • passenger information displays
  • Protective Services Officer (PSO) facilities.

Project benefits

Southland Station will be located next to Southland shopping centre to provide direct and safe access for shoppers and staff.

Once open, the station will operate in line with all other stations on the Frankston line, and will cater for an estimated 4,400 passengers every day.

Consultation results

PTV held community consultation on the design and location of the new station at Southland between March and May 2015. A report detailing the results of the consultation was released in February 2016 and is available for download below. The report outlines the feedback we received and how it was considered as we finalised the overarching design of the project.

The final overarching station design, which was refined from the original plan based on the feedback we received, was also released in February 2016. The design now includes connections to the adjacent Garfield Lane and will be future-proofed to allow for second and third entrances from Tulip Grove and Garfield Lane if required in the future.
