Major works between March and May include:

  • Pakenham, Lilydale, Craigieburn, Werribee and Mernda lines: Works continue to remove 20 dangerous and congested level crossings, with the Cherry Street level crossing gone by Easter.
  • Cranbourne Line: Laying 8km of additional track to allow more trains to run.
  • Sunbury Line: Upgrading the track, power and platforms for more modern trains.
  • Seymour, Shepparton, Warrnambool and Gippsland lines: Works to upgrade the regional network begin as well as maintenance works.
  • Metro Tunnel: Tunnel-boring to connect new underground stations.
  • North East Link: Relocating gas, water and sewer pipes and drains on Greensborough and Bulleen roads.
  • Monash and Princes Freeways: Adding 36km of extra lanes to make it safer and easier to travel around Melbourne.
  • West Gate Freeway: Rebuilding the southbound bridge on Grieve Parade and widening the freeway.

There will also be other critical maintenance work across the public transport and road networks.

While we prepare for a better network there will be disruptions. Be sure to plan ahead and allow extra time.
