Changes to Your Frankston Line Service

As part of major works to remove the North Road, McKinnon Road and Centre Road level crossings, the third track between Moorabbin and Caulfield stations will be temporarily closed until mid-June 2016.

During this time, Frankston line express services will stop all stations to/from Flinders Street Station, with no express trains in the morning and afternoon peak times on weekdays.

There will be no changes to Frankston line off-peak or weekend services.

Express trains that become stopping all station trains will travel direct to and from Flinders Street Station, not via the City Loop. If you take one of these trains, for those who want to travel to a City Loop station you are advised to change trains at Caulfield or Richmond stations.

From Monday 14 December to early 2016, at Glenhuntly, Ormond, McKinnon, Bentleigh and Patterson stations, trains will depart from:

  • Platform 1 – to the City
  • Platform 2 – to Frankston

These changes will allow us to keep the Frankston line running while we undertake necessary construction works as part of the level crossing removals.

Customers should plan ahead and allow up to 10 minutes extra journey time.

Thank you for your patience while we undertake these important works.

To plan your journey, customers should visit ptv.vic.gov.au or call 1800 800 007 – 6am to midnight daily (all night Friday & Saturday).
