The entire V/Line network is expected to come to a stop as staff prepare to strike on Wednesday.
Train conductors, controllers, officers, station staff, and customer service workers are all set to walk off the job from 3am-7am on Wednesday, December 13.
Services during the strike will be paused, and delays are expected to continue throughout the day after the strike concludes.
Nationals Member for Euroa Annabelle Cleeland said the strikes were yet another concerning situation for commuters in the region.
“The strikes and expected delays are just one of many issues members of my community have to deal with when it comes to commuting on our regional train network,” Ms Cleeland said.
“We have just three trains a day from Albury to Melbourne – this is completely unacceptable with our region’s population.
“Since fares were reduced, we are seeing significantly increased traffic across our regional network – resulting in crowded and uncomfortable services on our trains and coaches.
“I have countless stories of people missing medical appointments due to unreliable trains, and elderly having to stand for hours on the train because of the overcrowding and poor frequency of trains.
“With strikes set to impact the morning services, issues with this train line will become more apparent.”
Ms Cleeland warned commuters to prepare for extensive delays and prepare alternative methods of travel if possible.
“With delays expected to continue throughout Wednesday, please ensure you can still get to any essential appointments on time.”
