Major disruptions continue on Gippsland V/Line services
Coaches will continue to replace V/Line services on the Bairnsdale and Traralgon lines today.
Hundreds of frontline V/Line staff continue to isolate to contain the spread of coronavirus, affecting most V/Line services across the state.
Five positive tests among drivers and operational staff has meant that more than 300 of the V/Line workforce have been required to isolate. Contact tracing continues and V/Line said it is doing everything they can to operate trains when they can.
Passengers are urged to check the V/Line website and social media before travelling for the latest travel information. We will continue to provide regular updates during this time.
The Department of Transport said replacing Gippsland trains with coaches will allow for services to continue to operate, giving passengers certainty and helping to contain the outbreak.
The Gippsland line replacement coaches will operate to a 60-minute frequency. Customers should allow up to an extra 90 minutes for their journey.
