Here’s a reminder for commuters coming into Melbourne’s CBD now.

Two escalators at the Collins Street entrance of Southern Cross Station are still broken, with just one functioning.

Metro Trains has urged commuters on platforms nine and 10 to use the Bourke Street entrance instead.

Yesterday morning, some trains skipped Southern Cross during peak hour because the broken escalators were causing congestion on the platforms.

Lane widths have been reduced and speeds have been set to 60km/h in both directions of the Princes Highway in Werribee near Duncans Road while a new overpass is built.

It’s official. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called the election for May 18.

He’s speaking now at Parliament House.

Reporters Fergus Hunter and Latika Bourke are running a live blog on the announcement here.

VicTraffic says the works near Bradley Avenue will be finished about 3.30pm.

And Yarra Trams has just updated that advice to say route 58 trams are running again after the crash on Melville Road.

Route 58 trams aren’t running in parts of Brunswick West between stop 32 at Foden Street and stop 40 at Moreland Road.
