History[edit]

The concourse

The original Burwood station opened on 26 September 1855 at a site at ground level on the west side of Burwood Road.[1][2][3] The station was relocated in 1892 to the current location on the east side of Burwood Road and along Railway Parade when the line was quadruplicated. The line through Burwood was sextuplicated in 1922, and a second subway was constructed at the eastern end of the station.[4] This subway closed after 1985.

In April 1988, the goods siding to the south of the station was removed.[5]

In 2009/10, the station underwent a significant refurbishment to address high levels of congestion at times of high patronage. Work included an expanded concourse with extra ticket barriers, new toilets and lifts to the platforms.[6] The upgrade was completed in mid 2010.
