    The construction blitz is expected to take 11 days, from Saturday 4 August to Monday 14 August. During this time, buses will replace trains on sections of the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines past Dandenong.

    During the disruption, platform upgrade works will continue at Dandenong, Officer, Cranbourne and Hallam. These are four of 13 stations along the line where platforms are being extended in readiness for longer seven carriage trains, set to start running from mid-2019.

    Acting Minister for Public Transport Luke Donnellan asks passengers to be patient through these disruptions.

    The Cranbourne/Pakenham line is Melbourne’s busiest. The combination of level crossing removals, bigger trains and the Melbourne Metro Tunnel will see more trains run more often.

    Each High Capacity Metro Train will be able to carry 20% more passengers than any current train on the network, while providing a more spacious, comfortable ride. The trains will eventually run all the way through to Sunbury via the Metro Tunnel, transforming Melbourne’s busiest train lines into a “super corridor”’.
