Easter works

Over the Easter break construction work on two major rail projects, the Regional Rail Link and the Springvale Level Crossing Removal project, will take place.

Works to remove the level crossing at Springvale will take place between 16-21 April and include track upgrades to improve stability and reliability of services. In addition, platform 2 at Springvale station will be closed from 12-16 April.

From the 19-27 April a significant amount of work will be undertaken as part of the Regional Rail Link project, at Footscray and Sunshine stations; on bridges, grade separations and track and signalling upgrades.

Both projects play a vital role in upgrading the Metro network. While we appreciate these works will be disruptive to customers during this period, the long-term benefits will far outweigh the temporary inconvenience during the Easter period.
