We’re removing the dangerous and congested level crossings by lowering the rail line beneath the roads into an open trench and building a new premium station with better facilities and more services.

Construction is underway to remove the level crossings at Union Road, Surrey Hills and Mont Albert Road, Mont Albert and build a new, premium station.

We have carefully planned the works to minimise the disruption to the local community. Please be aware that:

  • access to Surrey Hills businesses will be maintained during construction
  • no-construction parking zones will help ensure that most car spaces in the area continue to be available for shoppers and visitors
  • wayfinding signage and traffic management staff will be in place to help people move safely through the area
  • we'll complete as much work as we can while keeping the old stations open and the trains running, but there will be some periods where buses replace trains.

While works are ongoing, the car parks at Surrey Hills station will be closed until late 2023. Alternative commuter parking is available in Box Hill and for local shoppers, there's plenty of on-street parking on Union Road and surrounding streets.

This map outlines parking available in local streets to assist you in finding the parking you need to continue to shop local throughout works.
