Two Melbourne Train Lines Set To Close For 37 DAYS!

After the Frankston lines just got back to normal following a 37-day blitz of its rail crossings it’s time for another two lines to feel the pain.

Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs are to get hit with several weeks of disruption in late spring and summer as rail line sand arterial roads are shut for their blitz.

The Lilydale and Belgrave lines will be closed for 34 days between Box Hill and Ringwood, starting on December 27, while two level crossings are eradicated at Heatherdale and Blackburn roads.

Further along the line in Bayswater, motorists will have fond a new way to get around as the busy Mountain Highway and Scoresby Road will be close to traffic for a lengthy period, while two crossings get removed.

Mountain Highway will be closed for a month, from November 20 to December 23, whole Scoresby Road will be closed at the level crossing from November 2 to 19. Bayswater station will close on October 15 to be demolished and rebuilt below ground.

The Belgrave line will be closed between Ringwood and Belgrave for another 37 days from early November, meaning commuters on the line face 71 days in all without a rail service between now and late January.
