One of Melbourne’s busiest train stations became a ghost town this morning as commuters rejected bus replacements amid major rail works.
Peak hour motorists along the Princes Fwy faced a worse commute than usual as the planned train outages between Werribee and Laverton forced passengers into their cars.
Looking for a car park at Werribee station after 7.15am on a weekday is often like searching for a needle in a haystack — but plenty of spots remained after 8am this morning.
Laverton station was chaos from about 6.15am as people scrambled to avoid taking the bus.
Commuters on nine train lines have been urged to prepare for rolling disruptions over the next three weeks amid a major rail construction blitz.
Buses are replacing trains between Werribee and Laverton stations today and tomorrow, and between Newport and Werribee tomorrow from 8.30pm until the last train.
On Saturday and Sunday, buses will replace trains on the Werribee and Williamstown lines between North Melbourne and Newport/Williamstown.
The rolling disruptions will also hit the Hurstbridge line between Parliament and Heidelberg from Friday to March 20.
