Frankston line – buses replace trains
Buses replace trains between Moorabbin and Mordialloc, and between Frankston and Stony Point stations from 10pm Saturday 23 May to Sunday 26 July.
This will allow us to excavate rail trenches to remove three level crossings and build new stations at Cheltenham and Mentone.
Buses also replace trains on other sections of the Frankston line throughout this time:
|Dates||Buses replace trains Between|
|Moorabbin and Frankston|

Once the line reopens on Monday 27 July, a shuttle bus service will operate between Southland and Parkdale stations from Monday 27 July to Sunday 2 August and then between Southland and Mentone stations until Sunday 16 August to connect passengers to train services.
