Due to the forecast temperatures we are expecting to run to an Extreme Heat Timetable on

Tuesday 12 March 2024

Bendigo (Partial), Swan Hill (Partial) and Echuca/Moama (Partial) lines

During the summer months, parts of V/Line’s network can be subject to extremely hot temperatures and we take extra precautions to make sure our train services run safely.

Trains that usually travel at up to 160km/h need to slow down to 90km/h or less because steel tracks expand in the heat.

On these days, affected lines will run to an Extreme Heat Timetable. This means journey times may be extended by a few minutes, and some services will be replaced by air-conditioned coaches for all or part of the journey.
