Major works on the Sunbury Line this autumn

Posted: 23 Feb 2021

Works continue on some of the state’s biggest transport projects this autumn. Critical maintenance works will also take place on our rail, tram and road networks to ensure services continue to run reliably.

As part of Victoria's Big Build, the Metro Tunnel, Sunbury Line Upgrade and Regional Rail Revival projects on the Gippsland, Seymour and Warrnambool lines will progress, as we work to build a better train network for all Victorians.

Major works will also continue to remove 20 dangerous and congested level crossings, with Cherry Street level crossing to be completely removed by the end of autumn.

There will be disruptions to the public transport and road networks while these works take place. Be sure to plan ahead and allow extra time.
