Victoria’s Big Build will continue over the autumn months, with the next phase of work focusing on level crossing removals across Melbourne and essential maintenance across the public transport network.

Major works taking place over the next few months include:

  • Removing the level crossing at Toorak Road and completing the new rail bridge, six months ahead of schedule, with nine days of intensive construction in April.
  • Removing three level crossings in Mentone and Cheltenham and rebuilding two new stations, with buses replacing trains on the Frankston Line in March and from May.
  • Building an underground pedestrian connection between Flinders Street Station and the new Town Hall Station for the Metro Tunnel.
  • Upgrading the Sunbury Line, including signalling installations, overhead wiring works and completing a platform extension at West Footscray, with buses replacing trains in March.
  • Starting works on the Monash Freeway Upgrade, as well as ongoing works on the West Gate Tunnel project, with a range of lane and ramp closures.
  • Elevating the tracks on the Upfield Line, building two new stations and removing four level crossings, which will see buses replace trains from 20 July for three months.

The scale of transformation happening on our public transport network now and into the future means extensive planning has been undertaken to minimise disruption. Thanks for your patience while we bring the pieces together.

To see if you’ll be affected, be sure to check the information on our disruptions page and interactive disruptions map before you travel.
