Murrumbeena railway station is located on the Pakenham and Cranbourne lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Murrumbeena opening on 14 May 1879.[1] The station once had a signal box at the northern end of Platform 1, which was removed in 1979 when boom barriers were provided at the Murrumbeena Road level crossing,[2] while two sidings were located at the southern end of Platform 2.

In March 2014, the Level Crossing Removal Authority announced a grade separation project to replace the Murrumbeena Road level crossing immediately to the west of the station, being done so as part of its elevated railway project. The historic station (protected by a local heritage overlay) and associated footbridge have been removed and will be replaced with a temporary station until the completion of the project. [3]
