V/Line regional trains in Victoria, Australia disrupted after communications fault
Thursday, May 19, 2022
Services to several Victorian destinations were affected, including Ballarat, , , Gippsland, and . According to a spokesperson for V/Line, the outage inhibited the ability of the control centre to communicate with trains, leading to the suspension of services.
While disruptions continued Wednesday, trains returned to running at normal speed after a backup system was implemented. Delays of up to an hour were expected on services after routes resumed. V/Line stated they are investigating to find the fault: "we realise how frustrating this is" and "we're working as hard as we can to get this rectified as quickly as we possibly can".
