There are major delays on the Williamstown line this morning with a number of cancellations on account of an equipment fault near North Melbourne. 

It’s also important to remember buses are replacing trains on the Alamein, Belgrave and Lilydale due to scheduled works. 

Express buses will operate between Parliament and Box Hill between 4:45am and 9:55pm today (Friday 8 March). 

Metro Trains is urging people to allow an extra 60 minutes and tram passengers on the 70, 72, 75, and 109 should expect higher levels of demand as a result. 

On the Glen Waverly Line, Metro Trains will run from Richmond to Flinders Street via the City Loop from 6.30am to 9.30am, due to scheduled works.
