In July 2015, a grade separation project, to replace the Burke Road road/tramway crossing, commenced. The station was demolished in September 2015, with a temporary station opening soon after. On 18 January 2016, the new below ground station opened.
The station is among sixteen others that are the site of eleven storey high communication towers, aimed to improve identification of trains around the network, and emergency management.
