Melton Highway weekend closure
We’re building the second half of the new road bridge at Melton Highway. To safely do this, a section of the highway will be closed at the rail line from 8:00pm Friday 13 April until 5:00am Monday 16 April 2018.
The closure will affect vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and bus passengers on routes 476, 460, 462 and 425 services.
Buses will also replace trains on the Sunbury/Bendigo line on Sunday 15 April 2018.

The weekend closure will allow our construction crew to get on with the job at Melton Highway. Two large cranes will take up residence on the newly built southern bridge and they’ll be used to lift 18 concrete bridge beams into place on the northern half of the structure.
During the closure, the nearest rail crossing will be at Watergardens Station, and mini buses will connect bus passengers on routes detouring around Melton Highway. Watergardens Town Centre will be open throughout the closure, as will other local businesses. Support your local traders by remembering to shop local!
