Cranbourne is a railway station in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, located in the suburb of Cranbourne, on the Cranbourne railway line. Classed as a Premium Station, it is in Metcard Zone 2, and is the terminus for the line.
Cranbourne is located on Station Street and between the Camms Road and South Gippsland Highway level crossings, with station access from Station Street and South Gippsland Highway.
The station consists of two platforms, in an island format, with a large fibro building at the Leongatha end of the station. The building houses an enclosed waiting area, ticket facilities and toilets. A large Metcard ticket vending machine is located inside the waiting area, which is able to dispense most ticketing options available and also accept notes and coins. An additional myki ticket vending machine is also located inside the waiting area.
Six stabling sidings are provided north-west of the station, at the location of the former goods yards, for overnight storage of suburban trains. The sidings opened in November 2008 and are accessible by trains from platform 2 only.
Cranbourne station opened on 1 October 1888. The disused South Gippsland line continues from the station including the nearby High Street (South Gippsland Highway) level crossing, which has bells and lights. V/Line services to Leongatha were discontinued on 24 July 1993. The last regular train running though and beyond Cranbourne was on January 16, 1998, when the Koala Siding (near Nyora) to Spotswood station sand train ceased operation.
In November 1993 Train Order Working replaced Electric Staff safeworking to Cranbourne, then on 24 March 1995 the electrification and power signalling on the Cranbourne line was commissioned. It was a $27 million Federal Government funded project that included an upgraded Dandenong station and a new railway station.
In April 2008 work started on the construction of six train stabling sidings at Cranbourne station at a cost of $37 million, to enable more trains to run on the line at peak times without duplicating the line. The station was also upgraded to include more seating, bicycle facilities, shelters and Myki equipment. The works were completed in November of the same year.
