Pakenham Line

Good service - trains are running on time to five minutes.

As we upgrade our network with the Regional Rail Link and Springvale Level Crossing Removal projects, we also need to train our drivers on the new sections of track. In order to complete the training as quickly as possible and with the lowest impact to the network, we will be implementing some planned cancellations from 22 April – 30 May.

View the planned cancellations on the Pakenham line here.

While signalling upgrades take place, buses will replace all trains between Pakenham and Oakleigh (after 6:30pm) and Cranbourne and Oakleigh (after 7:00pm).

Please note that this may increase your journey by 45 minutes or more.
