Due to the forecast temperatures, we will be running to a Full Extreme Heat timetable on the following lines and coach routes: ​
Thursday 22 February - Geelong, Warrnambool, Ballarat, Ararat, Horsham, Maryborough, Traralgon, Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance, Seymour and Shepparton 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.
