EXTRA METRO TRAIN SERVICES FOR SUNBURY
The Andrews Labor Government is delivering more metro services to residents in Sunbury and Diggers Rest from 10 August this year.
Member for Sunbury Josh Bull announced today that two new Watergardens services will be extended to Sunbury, with an extra service on the morning and afternoon peaks.
Mr Bull said that he had been fighting hard for more Sunbury metropolitan services to boost capacity, in light of recent changes to V/Line’s regional train policy.
In the morning peak, an extended service will depart Sunbury at 7.36am and Diggers Rest at 7.40am, before forming the 7.47am service at Watergardens, stopping all stations to Flinders Street via the City Loop.
In the afternoon peak, the 5.04pm Watergardens service from Flinders Street will be extended, stopping Diggers Rest at 5.50pm and arriving Sunbury at 5.56pm.
The new timetable will take effect on Monday, 10 August 2015.
