V/LINE has announced significant disruptions to its train services on Mondays and Fridays from this week due to rolling planned industrial action.

Rail Tram and Bus Union members employed by V/Line will take protected industrial action in the form of a work stoppage between 3am and 7am yesterday then Friday 16, Monday 19 and Friday 23 February.

No V/Line trains will run during the stoppage and significant delays are expected throughout the morning as trains get back into position and gradually resume the normal timetable.

A very limited coach replacement service will run for essential journeys with delays of two hours are expected. Replacement coaches will not stop at Metro train stations. Passengers who need to travel should expect significant delays and plan their day accordingly. Passengers with accessibility needs are encouraged to call 1800 800 007 before travelling so we can provide the best possible service for their journey.

A schedule of the first trains to return on each line will be published on the V/Line and PTV websites.

Metropolitan, freight and the Sydney-Melbourne XPT train services will still operate during planned industrial action. 

Public transport information is available at ptv.vic.gov.au, the PTV mobile app or on the V/Line website or mobile app.
