Glenhuntly railway station is located on the Frankston line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Glen Huntly, and opened on 19 December 1881 as Glen Huntly Road, being renamed Glen Huntly on 1 September 1882, and Glenhuntly on 20 April 1937.[2]

Glenhuntly station is located next to a tram square, one of only three remaining crossings in Melbourne at which tram and train tracks intersect, along with their electrified overhead wires. A small signal box is located at the Flinders Street end of the tram square, which controls the tramway crossing.

The former briquette depot at Glenhuntly was demolished in March/April 1975.[3]

In the mid 1980s, as part of works to add a third track on the Frankston line, the western platform was converted to an island platform.[4] During this time, the original station building, built in the 1880s, was demolished, and was replaced with the present brick structure, which opened on 1 July 1987. It was also during this time that boom barriers were provided at the Glen Huntly Road level crossing, and the nearby Nerrim Road level crossing, in 1986.[5] The Up face of the island platform was brought into use on 28 June 1987.[6]

Morning peak hour Frankston bound services use Platform 3, with Flinders Street bound trains using Platforms 1 and 2. At other times, Frankston bound trains use Platform 2.

The Glen Huntly Road railway crossing at Glenhuntly station and the nearby Neerim Road crossing are included in the proposed railway crossing removal project.[7][8]
