Melbourne Train Disruptions - Plan Ahead

April 1, 2019| Our Community /

Do you take the train to get to Epworth? Heads up - there will be major works between April 1st and April 23rd on some lines.

This is due to the removal of level crossings, building of the Metro Tunnel, and upgrading of regional lines.
Expect other public transport options and roads to be busier than usual, and plan ahead if possible.

Tips to get you moving

  • Caulfield is expected to be very busy between 7:30am - 8:30am on weekdays so allow extra time

  • If you can, walk or cycle in to the city

  • If you drive in to the city, consider carpooling

  • Travel before 7am or after 9am to avoid peak hour (if you travel before 7:15am on the train your fare is free)

Team Recipes - Tonjiru Miso Soup

Tonjiru is filling and so delicious. It is considered to be a winter dish served at home, festivals and parties in Japan, but I have it all year round. I never met a person who doesn’t like this fabulous soup!
