Buses replacing trains


Tara Murray

Buses are replacing trains between Sunshine and Footscray on the Sunbury train line due to a train fault.

Passengers are being told to listen for messages at stations, while allowing extra time for their journey. Services will resume once the fault is fixed.

The Department of Transport said its signals team was monitoring conditions and will adjust traffic lights as needed to minimise congestion and assist with bus movements in the area.
