Extra services and faster speeds in new Gippsland train schedule

A redesigned timetable to take effect on the Gippsland rail line from early next year will deliver faster, more frequent services all the way to Bairnsdale.

An extra 22 services will stop at Trafalgar, Yarragon, Longwarry, Bunyip and Nar Nar Goon every week.

Final works are being completed on the new Avon River Bridge at Stratford, which will increase train speeds to 90km/h rather than the 10km/h they have been forced to cross the bridge at for many years.

The upgrade will also deliver more off-peak services along the line by building second platforms and track at four stations, a crossing loop extension at Morwell, as well as level crossing and signalling upgrades along the line.

V/Line coaches will be re-coordinated with the new timetable in January – while Melbourne buses will gradually be brought in line with the new trains in February and April next year.

To keep passengers safe, extra cleaning of all public transport facilities will continue across the network and hand sanitising facilities will stay at key stations and stops. Victorians are being reminded to play their part in keeping our state safe by always wearing a mask on public transport, practising good hygiene and never travelling when unwell.

The new timetables will be available at ptv.vic.gov.au from 8 January 2021.
