Digging equipment working on rail crossing site at Burke Rd

Level crossing removals are amongst a number of transport projects set to ramp up over the summer period.

We are making the most of the quieter travel period so the impact on public transport and road users is minimised while maximising progress in a short time.

Construction will step up a gear at eight level crossings over January/February, affecting train services on the Frankston, Sunbury, Glen Waverley, Belgrave, Lilydale and Bendigo lines at various times, as well as nearby roads and the Route 72 tram. Buses will replace trains and trams at times while road closures and detours will be in place.

Keep an eye out for level crossing removal disruptions and travel safely during this time. For details, phone 1800 762 667.

Visit VicRoads for details of roadworks and closures. For public transport journey planning and timetable information, visit Public Transport Victoria or phone 1800 800 007 (6.00am to midnight).
