RAIL MAINTENANCE AFFECTS MELBOURNE TO ALBURY IN AUGUST SEPTEMBER
The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) will begin essential rail maintenance and enhancement works in Victoria, in August and September 2022.
Track renewal and drainage works will occur in the South Dynon area between 6th and 26th of August, improving reliability for V-Line passenger rail services travelling on the line to Albury.
Maintenance program works between 3rd and 5th September will help to maintain a high standard of reliability across the network.
V/Line and NSW TrainLink XPT passenger train services between Melbourne and Albury will run as coaches while works are undertaken.
However, due to multiple work locations and availability of maintenance equipment, ARTC has been unable to complete the South Dynon and its maintenance program works within the same period.
Unfortunately, the maintenance program and other urgent works require track closures to allow access to the tracks for works that cannot be done safely while trains are running.
