How we will build the station

Domain Station will be an important interchange point between the train and tram services, providing access to existing business precincts and growing residential areas on St Kilda Road, Kings Way and in South Melbourne, Southbank and the expanding western CBD.

The new station will serve thousands of people destined for the employment and residential precinct along St Kilda Road every day, and support the continuing growth and redevelopment of the South Melbourne / Kings Way precinct.

Domain Station is expected to provide access to around 33,000 jobs, and 17,000 residents will be located within 800 metres of the station location from 2031.

Frequently asked questions

Why build a new railway station at Domain?

Domain Station will be at the heart of the St Kilda Road commercial precinct and the Shrine of Remembrance. Connecting this precinct to the rail network for the first time provides access for thousands of people from all over Melbourne to places of work, and gives visitors rail access to the Shrine and Royal Botanic Gardens.

St Kilda Road is the busiest tram corridor in the world. Without Domain Station, St Kilda Road will no longer cope with the increasing tram patronage and the extra tram services needed to meet demand.

Will the station provide pedestrian access across St Kilda Road?

The station entrances are strategically placed to provide a pedestrian walkway underneath busy St Kilda Road, improving safety for the many pedestrians that use the precinct.

What will happen to the Domain Interchange tram stop during construction?

The Domain Interchange will need to be temporarily removed to allow for construction of the new underground Domain Station. Trams will keep running along St Kilda Road as much as possible while the new Domain Station is constructed.

Will the station be integrated with the Domain Interchange tram stop?

Once the station is completed is will be directly below the Domain Interchange tram stop, allowing passengers to move seamlessly between train and tram services.

Why is Domain Station located at the intersection of Domain Road and St Kilda Road rather than Fawkner Park?

St Kilda Road is the busiest tram corridor in the world. A new station at Domain will help to relieve pressure on this corridor, and provide an important interchange point between the rail and tram networks for passengers travelling between the CBD and the city's south-eastern suburbs. It will also service the busy St Kilda Road commercial and arts precincts.

The new Domain Station will make it easier to visit some of Melbourne's most valued parks and attractions such as the Shrine of Remembrance, the Royal Botanic Gardens and Albert Park.
