The Victorian Government is working to build a better and safer transport network across Victoria, and there will be disruptions to the public transport and road network throughout winter.
As part of Victoria’s Big Build, it is concentrating on the removal of level crossings on the Frankston and Upfield lines and upgrading major road and rail networks across Melbourne from June to August. In addition, essential maintenance will also be carried out on the tram and regional train network during the winter period.
