Clayton railway station is a railway station on the Gippsland line in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern suburb of Clayton, opening on 6 January 1880 as Clayton's Road, being renamed Clayton on 6 July 1891.[3] It became a premium station in 1998.[4]

In March 2014, the state government announced a grade separation project to replace the Clayton and Centre Road level crossings on either side of the station. This included the station.[5]

The rebuilt station was opened in April 2018. It is above ground along one of the three sections of elevated rail that was built along the Pakenham-Crossing line to replace the level crossings as part of the Victorian Level Crossing Removal projects. The station is accessible by escalator, lift and stairs.[6]

Platforms & services[edit]

Clayton station has one elevated island platform with two faces. It is serviced by Metro Trains' Pakenham and Cranbourne line services.[7][8] It is also serviced by V/Line's Traralgon services.[9]
