On the regional train network, coaches will replace trains on parts of the Ballarat, Bendigo, Gippsland, Geelong and Warrnambool lines. See the list of train disruptions on the PTV website.

There will be a range of other smaller disruptions for essential maintenance works across the rail network and on the West Gate Tunnel so plan ahead before you travel.

Over this time, roads will be busier than usual due to the tram and train disruptions so expect delays and allow more time for your journey. Or, consider alternatives such as taking a train replacement bus, carpooling, working remotely or if possible, avoiding any unnecessary travel.

Details of the roads affected by the works are listed on the VicRoads website.

Also, if you’re travelling to the Melbourne Airport, allow extra time for your journey.

Please note, the AFL Grand Final and traditional Grand Final Parade will not be impacted, with trains running so fans can get to and from these events.

During the Blitz period our Traffic Management Centre will be monitoring the roads making sure traffic is running as smoothly as it can.
