The station was upgraded in 2002-2003,[2] and was classified as a Premium station in December 2007.[3]

A stabling yard is located north of the station, which was provided in 1997.[4]

The line previously continued to Somerton. Under the PTV Network Development Plan, this line would be reinstated, and will include a flyover over the North East standard gauge line. This will allow Seymour V/Line services to run via Upfield, and eventual electrification of the line to Wallan.[5]
