As part of an autumn constuction blitz major works will soon start on the Metro Tunnel entrance in South Yarra.
Metro Tunnel construction teams will be working around the clock to unearth the tunnel entrance which will untangle the City Loop to run more trains more often across Melbourne. To get this work done, buses will replace trains on the Cranbourne and Pakenham, Frankston and Sandringham lines.
Construction works will happen across the metropolitan and regional train network from 1 - 23 April, with most of it taking place during the holiday period when less people use the network.
Gippsland passengers, who have been most impacted by upgrades along Melbourne's busiest train line, will again receive free travel.
The Sandringham line will reopen for Eastern Monday.
