Replacement buses continuing on the Pakenham line

Added: 22 December 2018

Due to last week’s heavy rains, buses will continue to replace trains on the outer sections of the Pakenham line on Monday 24 December.

Replacement buses will now continue to run between Dandenong and Pakenham until the last service on Monday,

Last week's wet weather means we have not been able to complete all of the required driver training on the upgraded section of track. 

Free travel will be extended for impacted passengers on the Pakenham line to cover the additional disruption. Please use the existing free travel token, which will now also cover Monday's travel. 

We will have extra staff on hand to help you with the latest information. 

If you are planning to travel on the Pakenham line on Monday, please check before you travel and allow additional travel time.

Trains will resume as scheduled on Tuesday, 25 December.
