Werribee line replacement buses to continue
12 Dec 2020
Buses will continue to replace trains on the Werribee line for a further two weeks following a signalling fault that occurred last Friday 4 December in Werribee.
Regular train services are set to now resume Monday 28 December, with buses continuing to replace trains between Laverton and Werribee until last service on Sunday 27 December.
Independent investigators have been working throughout the week to identify the source of the fault. They have advised that further work and testing needs to be carried out to make sure the system is safe.
To allow investigators to access the line, construction work on level crossing removals at Werribee and Cherry streets in Werribee, Old Geelong Road in Hoppers Crossing and Aviation Road in Laverton was stopped following the signal fault.
Werribee line passengers are thanked for their continued patience during this time.
Freight trains are able to continue running during this time and are being guided safely through the level crossings by traffic management.
Passengers are asked to allow extra travel time.
