Level crossing removal works

As part of Victoria’s Big Build, major works are taking place on the Upfield Line until Sunday 1 November. We’re building a new rail bridge and removing four level crossings at Bell Street, Munro Street and Reynard Street in Coburg and Moreland Road in Brunswick. Two new stations will also be constructed at Moreland and Coburg.

While these works take place, buses and trams will replace trains on sections of the Upfield Line. If you do need to travel, plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.

To ensure the safety of all workers and the community, all construction and maintenance work undertaken will operate under a High Risk COVID Safe plan.

Visit coronavirus.vic.gov.au for more details on current restrictions and the latest advice. See coronavirus (COVID-19) for more information on travelling on the network.
