The Age: V/Line and Metro clash over state of tracks on busy Melbourne rail line April 14, 2015 – 6:38PM Adam Carey Transport Reporter for The Age

Rail operators V/Line and Metro are in dispute over the condition of the tracks on a long stretch of Melbourne’s rail network.

Safety concerns have led V/Line to impose a speed restriction on all of its trains travelling between Pakenham and Dandenong “due to poor track condition”. The decision came after its train drivers reported rough riding.
