V/Line apologises after boom gates disrupt traffic
V/Line has apologised to motorists after the boom gates on the Princes Highway level crossing at Birregurra became stuck for more than an hour.
A call came through Thursday morning around 8:20 to say that boom gates remained lowered following the passage of a train.
Police were called to manage traffic at the level crossing and to allow vehicles to safely pass through.
A technician completed repairs on the boom gate at approximately 9:30 am and normal operations have resumed.
V/Line asks motorists to always obey road rules and signs, and not take risks around level crossings.
