Metro Tunnel

Works are currently taking place to build the eastern entrance to the Metro Tunnel, remove the level crossing at Carrum and upgrade power and signalling.

During this period the following rail lines will be disrupted with buses replacing trains at various times:

Cranbourne and Pakenham lines
Frankston and Stony Point lines
Sandringham line
Glen Waverley line

Works for these projects will take place at the same time to minimise disruption to passengers.

What to expect

  • Buses will replace trains along the affected lines
  • Metro Trains rail replacement buses will operate from:
    Saturday 23 March to Sunday 24 March
    Monday 1 April to Wednesday 3 April
    Saturday 6 April to Tuesday 23 April
  • Train replacement bus stops may be located near your residence or business.
  • Windsor Station train replacement bus stops are located on both sides of Chapel Street (on bridge near Tram stop 43) between Peel Street and Maddock Street.

How this affects you

  • There will be changes to on-street parking, including the temporary suspension of car spaces in this area.
  • You may notice increased noise, traffic and pedestrian movements due to buses travelling on roads through your local area.

We have worked with local council to find locations for passengers to safely board train replacement buses, and to minimise the impact on the local community, and surrounding parking and road facilities.

Train replacement bus routes and parking arrangements have been approved by Stonnington Council, VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria (PTV).

For replacement bus, journey planning and service information, visit or call PTV on 1800 800 007.

If you would like more information about these projects, visit or call 1800 105 105.

We thank you for your patience as we work towards delivering an upgraded transport network for Melbourne’s growing population.
