BALLARAT commuters have vented their spleen on social media this morning as buses replace trains for the 12th consecutive day on the Ballarat line.
Late last night Regional Rail Revival announced that works on the Ballarat line upgrade had gone overtime and would need an extra 24 hours to complete.
Trains are now expected to resume on Wednesday morning.
It's been a frustrating two weeks for passengers with one extension already after the expected 10 day stoppage. Trains were expected to be up and running by Monday morning Rail Projects Victoria announced at 7.30pm Monday that coaches would replace trains for a further 24 hours to allow for the construction blitz to be completed.

"As a result, we've had to extend this construction blitz for another day," he said.
