Metro Tunnel

Delays expected during Autumn construction blitz

Posted: 29 Apr 2019

During April, major infrastructure upgrades continued in preparation for the Metro Tunnel, which will untangle the City Loop to run more trains across Melbourne. These works prepared our network for bigger, better trains and deliver improvements for passengers across Victoria.

Timed to coincide with the April holiday period to cause the least impact on people’s travel, construction works continued across the metropolitan and regional train networks to build the Metro Tunnel, remove dangerous level crossings and upgrade regional lines.

Our works that required closures of the Cranbourne, Pakenham and Frankston lines in April have now finished. Thank you for your patience while buses were replacing trains.
