Weekdays: Monday 4 July – Friday 8 July

Customers travelling to or from stations between Lilydale and Ringwood East, or travelling to or from stations between Belgrave and Heathmont
Limited express buses will replace trains to and from Box Hill Station. Stopping all stations buses will operate between Belgrave/Lilydale and Box Hill stations. Customers travelling to stations beyond Ringwood, must change at Box Hill for a limited express bus to Belgrave/Lilydale.

Customers travelling to or from stations between Ringwood and Nunawading
Buses will replace trains to and from Blackburn Station. This will help ease congestion at Box Hill Station.

To ease congestion at connecting train stations (Blackburn and Box Hill) during peak travel times, customers travelling to the City from stations beyond Ringwood will connect to the train at Box Hill.

By splitting the line up in this way, we will ease both road and foot traffic congestion at the station, provide a more direct bus route, and help get you to your destination sooner. Customers should allow up to an additional 45 minutes travel time.
