Heyington railway station, MelbourneEdit profile
Heyington is a railway station in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, located in the suburb of Toorak, on the Glen Waverley railway line. Heyington is unmanned and is in Metcard Zone 1.
Heyington is located in a cutting, between Heyington Place and St Kevin's College, with station access from both via steep steps and a footbridge at the Flinders Street end of the station, and because of this, it is the only operational station on the network not accessible for wheelchair users (except for a dedicated school entrance for students on platform 2). It is also the only operational station in Melbourne isolated from a public road (the other for both cases being the now closed General Motors Station).
The station consists of two side platforms; Platform 1 has a large weatherboard building, while platform 2 has a small steel shelter. A large Metcard ticket vending machine is located at the entrance to platform 1, which is able to dispense most ticketing options available and also accept notes and coins. A coin-only Metcard ticket vending machine is located at the entrance to platform 2. Myki ticket vending machines are located at the entrances to platform 1 and platform 2.
Heyington station opened on 24 March 1890. Electrified services reached the station in 1922.
