Cranbourne and Pakenham line works

As part of Victoria’s Big Build we’ve removed more than 49 dangerous and congested level crossings. Twin tunnels have been dug for the Metro Tunnel, with construction underway on five new stations. As we bring the pieces together, buses will replace trains on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines in January and February.

We encourage you to plan ahead and allow extra travel time this summer, with work on Victoria’s Big Build continuing on the public transport and road network.

Additional cleaning is being carried out on all trains, trams and buses, including high touch surface areas, to keep staff and passengers safe. See coronavirus (COVID-19) for more information on travelling on the network.
