Rail Maintenance Continues In August
Essential maintenance will be completed over 11 nights in August along the Gippsland rail corridor, as part of planned works by the State Government to boost reliability for passengers in the long term.
Road surfaces at level crossings in Garfield, Drouin and Stratford will be refurbished between August 6-15, improving access for vehicles and preventing future disruptions.
Crews will excavate the three level crossings to replace old sleepers and rails, before installing new track and re-asphalting the road.
Thankfully for passengers on the Gippsland Line, the works will be completed without disrupting V/Line services, with trains re-routed on to the adjacent line or works completed in between trains.
