Tottenham railway station is located on the Sunbury line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the western Melbourne suburbs of Tottenham and West Footscray, opening on 2 March 1891.[1] It is located above the Ashley Street rail overpass, which provides station access.

Tottenham Yard lies north of the station. A number of freight only lines also run alongside, along with the Melbourne - Sydney standard gauge line. The Regional Rail Link lines run to the south of the station.[2]

The station was rebuilt as an island platform in 1981 to eliminate the Ashley Street level crossing, replacing it with a rail overpass over a two-lane road tunnel. At the same time the station buildings were reconstructed, and the signal box demolished.[3][4] The narrow section of the Ashley Street roadway dates to the construction of Tottenham Yard, the newer bridge for the suburban tracks having been built with provision for future duplication of the road beneath.

Platforms & services[edit]
