Be sure to plan ahead and allow more time for your journey during the major works this winter, especially if you're travelling over the school holiday period.

Plan your journey before you travel using our Journey planner, consider alternatives if you can and travel outside of peak times if possible.

There'll also be a range of other smaller disruptions for essential works across the network. See Disruptions for information on all current and upcoming disruptions across Victoria.
