Coronavirus and Victoria's Big Build

Published: 9 November 2020

Work is continuing safely on Victoria’s Big Build, our biggest transport upgrade ever.

The health and safety of our workforce and community remains our top priority. Workers on all of Victoria’s Big Build sites are required to wear face masks unless they meet any of the criteria for exception - such as a medical condition or for Occupational Health and Safety guidelines.

COVIDsafe Plans are in place on all project sites across Victoria.

Physical distancing measures are in place as well as increased hygiene practices.

Public transport

Public transport services are currently running to the normal timetable, unless there's a disruption caused by construction.

All services, stops and stations are being disinfected every day. Extra cleaning is being carried out on all bus replacement services.

While using trains, trams and buses, you must:

  • wear a mask (unless you have an exemption)
  • practise good hand hygiene
  • maximise the distance between you and other passengers.

Also try to travel outside peak times, when fewer people are using the network.
