As works continue to unfold across the Pakenham Line, regular users of the Narre Warren Station are the latest of the line’s passengers to be interrupted by the upgrades.
Buses are now replacing trains across sections of the Pakenham line until the last service on Sunday, 10 December to allow for this work to be completed safely.
While Pakenham Line trains will resume on Monday 11 December, trains will continue to run express through Narre Warren Station over the new rail bridge, as the station officially closes from Monday, 11 December to allow for the current site to be demolished.
A shuttle bus service will transport passengers from Narre Warren Station to Hallam and Berwick stations until the station reopens, at which point passengers will hopefully be able to enjoy the station’s improved and modern facilities, landscaped forecourt, and the much-needed elevated rail bridge in place of Webb Street’s level crossing.
With the station’s closure, PTV has also announced the station’s Eastern Car Park will be closed until Early 2025, and the Austin Avenue temporary commuter car park closed until early December.
Bus stops on Webb Street will also be closed until 6pm on Tuesday, 28 November.
