Spring construction blitz

From 21 September to 27 October, important works on the rail network in preparation of the Metro Tunnel and works on the West Gate Tunnel, will take place.

Over this time, roads will be busier than usual due to the tram and train disruptions (External link) so plan ahead 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.

Please note, trains are running to get fans to and from the AFL Grand Final and traditional Grand Final Parade.

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

Sign up for daily disruption emails.
