Be sure to plan ahead and allow more time for travel during major works this autumn, especially if you’re travelling over the school holiday period.

To avoid delays:

  • plan your journey before you travel using Journey planner
  • allow extra travel time
  • consider alternatives if you can and travel outside of peak times where possible.

There are also smaller disruptions for essential works happening across the network. 

See Disruptions for information on all current and upcoming disruptions across Victoria.
