Alternative passenger parking is available at Huntingdale Station (up to 90 spaces) and Holmesglen Station (up to 50 spaces).

Accessible parking will remain on the northern section of the station car park off Warrigal Road.

Underpass Closure

From Saturday 21 September 2019 the Oakleigh Station underpass will be closed for upgrade works until early 2020. 

  • People walking from Portman Street and Haughton Road will need to walk over Warrigal Road bridge.
  • A temporary ramp will be installed allowing passengers to access platform 1 from Haughton Road. Entry from Portman Street to platform 2 will be maintained.
  • Pedestrian and cyclist detours will be in effect around the Oakleigh Station precinct throughout the project.
  • Wayfinding signage and traffic management will be in place to assist people moving around the area.

During the underpass closure, a DDA compliant shuttle bus will be available to assist passengers unable to walk the Warrigal Road bridge detour. 

When replacement buses need to be used, the current designated spots located on both sides of Haughton Road will be relocated approx. 80-120m south-west between Mill Road and Mora Avenue, while the station is being upgraded.

Background

The State Government has announced work will begin in August on upgrading the Oakleigh Station  to improve pedestrian access and increase lighting and  security cameras around the station.

The government has advised that Oakleigh Station will remain open during construction with regular train and bus services maintained

While the works are taking place, 90 car spaces around the station will be unavailable. Additional car parking spaces, around 140, will be available at Huntingdale and Holmesglen stations.

The works will include changes to the underpass that currently provides the only pedestrian crossing between the north and south sides of the station, with commuters having to use a central island for city-bound services.

The works comprise:

  • a new forecourt providing direct access to city-bound trains from Haughton Road
  • a landscaped forecourt and platform entrance on the Portman Street side of the station
  • a new underpass for easier access
  • two new lifts and redesigned ramps for both platforms
  • improved lighting
  • new CCTV
  • new shelters to protect commuters from weather.

The works are due for completion by August 2020.
