Commuters along the Lilydale line can expect disruptions to the service throughout July, as buses replace trains.

With level crossing removal works occurring at Surrey Hills and Mont Albert stations ahead of the expected time frame, replacement buses will interrupt the service.

Buses will replace trains between Camberwell and Ringwood stations from 8.30pm Friday, 8 July to the last train on Sunday, 10 July.

Replacement buses will continue to operate instead of trains between Camberwell and Box Hill until the last service on Sunday, 24 July.

Motorists who may travel to or through these suburbs are advised of detours and road closures during this time.

Disruptions to the roads are expected until early August with lane closures and detours in place. Drivers are urged to allow extra time for their travels.

Passengers are encouraged to visit for more information and to plan their journey.
