Notice of industrial action
Due to industrial action, morning trains will be disrupted across the entire V/Line network on Wednesday 13 December. There will also be delays and cancellations throughout the day.
Please be advised, further extreme heat timetables for the Geelong line will be uploaded soon – Updated 8/12/23 5:00pm

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.
