FORTY-EIGHT out of 50 Echuca train services arrived at their destination on time in May.
The two services that ran behind schedule were due to a track fault and a level crossing fault in the metropolitan network, which caused delays to services along the line.
May’s performance results come following Echuca’s train services returning on May 19.
V/Line chief executive James Pinder said it followed the completion of a $4.9 million safety upgrade program to boost safety for passengers and motorists.
‘‘We’ve installed improved train detection technology at all active level crossings on the Echuca line to ensure level crossings are activated in time,’’ he said.
V/Line is reminding customers about the extra Bendigo line services set to be introduced in just over two months.
An extra 18 new weekday and weekend services will be added for Bendigo on August 27, with new timetables available for online download in July.
