Delays expected during Autumn construction blitz

Victoria is currently in a transport construction boom with 41 major road and rail projects being built. During April, major infrastructure upgrades continue in preparation for the Metro Tunnel which will open in 2025, which will untangle the City Loop to run more trains across Melbourne. These works will prepare our network for bigger, better trains and deliver improvements for passengers across Victoria.
