Sat.20.4.24 Metro X
Frankston line: Trains will not stop at Parkdale until mid 2024 (level-crossing removal work). Shuttle buses will operate Mentone - Parkdale - Mordialloc, connecting with trains. No access to station facilities or platforms during this time.
Buses replace trains Sydenham Watergardens - Sunbury until 2.15 Sun 21 Apr (works).  https://tinyurl.com/43bbr4mp
Lilydale/Belgrave/Alamein lines: Buses replace trains city  [Parliament] - Camberwell until the last train of Sun 21.4 (maintenance and renewal works).  https://tinyurl.com/4846mk86
Buses replace trains city [Richmond] - Glen Waverley until the last train of Sun 21.4 (maintenance and renewal works). https://tinyurl.com/5amfzb2m
Arden is the shallowest of the five stations served by the new tunnel.  Video clip of the journey from the platform 14 metres underground up to the main entrance in Laurens St.
Heading to see Collingwood and Port Adelaide at MCG today?  Works between Parliament and Camberwell will impact some journeys.  Replacement buses will stop at Wellington Pde, Jolimont, 11.00-13.00 to get you to the game [but won't serve homeward travel].  If you’re travelling beyond Camberwell, take a train to Caulfield and change for an express replacement bus to Camberwell.
Otherwise, standard arrangements for Richmond and Jolimont and connecting to western & northern lines.
- 16.46 Richmond: Crowds are flowing well through Brunton Ave subway.
- 16.50  Jolimont: Crowds are flowing well through Yarra Park and the station.
- 17.12 Jolimont: Crowds are clearing well and waiting times are minimal. There's still a few football specials yet to run.
