Pedestrians will be affected, as will bus and train services.

Bus routes 425, 460, 462 and 476 will not be able to cross the level crossing on Melton Highway, so will instead take customers to and from Watergardens Station.

Buses will meet customers on the other side of the station to take them on their onward journey, so all routes will complete their scheduled services in both directions.

The level crossing will also be closed to pedestrians and cyclists due to the lowered electrical wires. The nearest crossing is at Watergardens Station. Pedestrians who need assistance to get around the local area can contact us on 1800 762 667 to take advantage of our free accessible shuttle service 7:00am until 7:00pm on 29 and 30 July.
