Spring school holidays banner

We’ll keep you moving during the spring holidays

Make sure to plan ahead if you’re travelling on public transport these school holidays, with maintenance and improvement works on our road and rail network scheduled to minimise disruption during the quieter school holiday period.

We’re also continuing to improve your public transport network by removing dangerous level crossings and preparing for the arrival of High Capacity Metro Trains in mid-2019. Most of these works will happen at night to cause as little disruption as possible. Make sure to allow a little extra time for your journey.

You can find information about road closures and diversions at the VicRoads website.

Plan ahead and check below to see if your journey will be affected by spring holiday works.

For detailed planned and unplanned disruption information, see our Live travel updates page.
