Middle Footscray railway station, Melbourne

Edit profile

Middle Footscray is a railway station in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia located in the suburb of Footscray, on the Sydenham railway line. Middle Footscray is unmanned and is in Metcard Zone 1.


The station is located at the western end of the Victoria Street road underpass, and is accessible from an underpass from the same road.

The station consists of two platforms, in an island format, with a large brick building at the Flinders Street end of the station. Due to being one of the most isolated stations on the network, a small coin-only Metcard ticket machine is located at the entrance to the island platform, which dispenses only selected ticketing options.

Two dual gauge tracks run beside the station forming the South Kensington - West Footscray goods lines, linking the Port of Melbourne and other freight terminals to the rest of the state. The tracks also form part of the Melbourne to Sydney standard gauge line.
