A number of roads were either diverted or closed for the Pyalong Station.

The bridge over what was, at the time, Pyalong Creek, also spanned Bridge Street. This street is now closed under the bridge remains as a safety precaution. A road diversion connected Bridge Street with Mollison Street (Pyalong-Seymour Road) and Mollison Street with what is now named Station Street - both on the west station boundary.

The track bed is now Ladderhill Road as it heads towards Tooborac through a works depot.
