Glen Iris Railway Station upgrade complete

Posted On January 18, 2016

Upgrades to Gardiner Railway Station in Glen Iris are now complete following the removal of the level crossing on Burke Road.

Acting Minister for Public Transport, Luke Donnellan, said the new improvements form part of the Level Crossing Removal Project.

“The Andrews Labor government’s removal of 50 dangerous and congested level crossings is not only improving safety and reducing congestion on our roads, it’s transforming train stations across Melbourne,” Donnellan said.

“The new Gardiner Station is safer, more accessible and better connected for the 1,500 people who use it every day.”

The new station now runs underneath Burke Road and connects to Route 72 tram services from a single level access tram stop.

Future upgrades to the station will include landscaping, as well as rebuilding of the station car park.

“It’s the first of many stations we will rebuild through the Level Crossing Removal Program, which will reduce congestion, create space to run more trains, and make local streets safer,” he said.

“These congested death-traps have held up too many people and risked too many lives for too long. They need to go and we’re getting on with it.”

Bentleigh, Ormond, and McKinnon stations will be completely rebuilt as part of the project, with St Albans, Ginifer and Heatherdale stations to be rebuilt as part of a separate program.
