Buses replace Hurstbridge trains for extra week

Buses replace trains on the Hurstbridge line for an extra week until Monday, May 7 after failures to foresee signalling complications.

The government told train travellers of the unexpected delay on ANZAC Day eve, Tuesday, April 24.

Due to issues with upgrading and integrating signalling buses replace trains for an extra week – until Monday, May 7 – as signalling issues are resolved.

Transport reporter for The Age, Clay Lucas, reported the announcement had sparked criticism from the state opposition and the Public Transport Users Association.

The government’s contracts website shows an alliance of contractors including Metro Trains, Laing O’Rourke, Fulton Hogan and Jacobs Group received an estimated $435 million.
