Frankston Line Works | Metro Trains

Frankston Line Works

Over the Australia Day long weekend through until Sunday 31 January 2016, we will have changes to normal timetabled services on the Frankston Line. Changes include replacement bus services and a weekend timetable for the Australia Day public holiday. This will allow for major works on the North Road, McKinnon Road and Centre Road Level Crossing Removal Project.

On Australia Day, Tuesday 26 January, trains will run to Saturday timetable with no all-night trains.

Please note that there will be temporary changes to Frankston Line services that are timetabled to continue onto Southern Cross/North Melbourne stations after arrival at Flinders St (or vice versa). These temporary changes will apply to services on Monday 25 & Wednesday 27 to Friday 29 January.

The following AM services will not form into a Southern Cross/North Melbourne service:

  • The 8:13am Caulfield to Flinders St service (8:31am arrival at Flinders St)
  • The 8:31am Caulfield to Flinders St service (8:49am arrival at Flinders St)
