Level crossing removal works

As part of Victoria’s Big Build, major works are taking place on the Upfield Line from 8.30pm Monday 27 July to Sunday 15 November. We’re building a new rail bridge and removing four level crossings at Bell Street, Munro Street and Reynard Street in Coburg and Moreland Road in Brunswick. Two new stations will also be constructed at Moreland and Coburg.

While these works take place, buses and trams will replace trains on sections of the Upfield Line. If you do need to travel, plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.

Metropolitan Melbourne has moved to Stage 4 restrictions with stronger rules in place from 6pm Sunday 2 August to limit the movement of people for six weeks. Stage 3 restrictions will take effect in regional Victoria from 11.59pm on Wednesday 5 August. Measures includes a curfew in Melbourne from 8pm to 5am. We ask all our passengers to only travel for a permitted purpose. If you must travel, wear a face covering for your entire journey and practise good hygiene.

Visit for more details on current restrictions and the latest advice. See coronavirus (COVID-19) for more information on travelling on the network.
