Major works this Winter

Changes today, better transport tomorrow.

This winter we’ll say “goodbye” to our 65th  dangerous and congested level crossing as we step up work on 15 level crossing removal sites across the rail network.

We’re also upgrading the Sunbury Line, getting it ready for bigger and more modern trains to run.

While we work, there will be disruptions – be sure to plan ahead and allow extra time. For a detailed list of disruptions and to find out how changes today are building better transport for tomorrow, visit Victoria’s Big Build.

Metropolitan trains

Be sure to plan ahead and allow more time for your journey during the major works this Winter, especially if you’re travelling over the school holiday period.

Plan your journey before you travel using our Journey planner, consider alternatives if you can and travel outside of peak times if possible.

There’ll also be a range of other smaller disruptions for essential works across the network.

See the Metro planned works page for information on all current and upcoming disruptions on the train network.
