There will be significant power upgrades and essential maintenance across the rail network from 9pm Friday 30 August to the early hours of Monday 2 September.

The works are part of the Victoria’s biggest power upgrade, helping to deliver bigger and better trains, signals and communications.

Buses will replace trains on sections of the Craigieburn, Cranbourne, Frankston, Pakenham, Sandringham, Sunbury, Upfield, Werribee and Williamstown lines, and regional trains on the Geelong, Gippsland and Warrnambool lines.

Additionally, no trains on any lines will run through the City Loop, with trams and replacement buses in place to help passengers move around the city and between City Loop stations.

Services will continue to operate direct to and from Flinders Street on the Mernda, Hurstbridge, Belgrave, Lilydale, Glen Waverley and Alamein lines across the weekend.

Please be aware of more people using the roads, or an alternative line or route, if their usual journey is disrupted.
