Yarraman railway station is located on the Pakenham and Cranbourne lines, in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Noble Park, and opened on 21 December 1976.[1]

The Up line, towards Flinders Street, was slewed to allow construction of the station in 1974.[2] During construction, an alternative name for the station, Fotheringham, a notable local family, was suggested.[2]

The EastLink tollway is located at the Down end of the station, via an overpass over the rail line, Hanna Street and Railway Parade.

In 2015, the Level Crossing Removal Authority announced the grade separation of the nearby Chandler Road level crossing. Construction began in 2016,[3] with the level crossing removed in 2018.[4]. Despite the removal of the level crossing, the original station is not rebuilt.
