Numerous morning and evening trains along the Bendigo line to Melbourne will be replaced by coaches as construction works for the West Gate Tunnel project ramp up in the coming weeks. Between July 14 and 23 there will be multiple train services between Bendigo station and Southern Cross station which will shift to coach services, particularly off-peak night time services. All interrupted train services will be replaced by a mixture of express coaches and coaches stopping at all stations. MORE NEWS: Bendigo Line trains will be disrupted because of works taking place on the Dynon Road Bridge over the regional rail lines. While these works are commencing sections of track will have to be closed, restricting access to Southern Cross Station. In Melbourne, coaches will arrive and depart from the Southern Cross Station coach terminal located on Spencer Street, opposite Little Bourke Street. Below are the times and services which will be affected by the works and will be changed from trains to coaches for the entire length of the journey.
