Buses replacing trams along St Kilda Road
Drivers and tram users are being reminded to plan ahead as buses replace trams along St Kilda during the April school holidays as part of Metro Tunnel works to build the new underground Anzac Station.
Commuters should allow up to 30 minutes extra travel time when using St Kilda Road between 1-17 April.
Buses will replace all St Kilda Road tram routes except route 58 (3, 3a, 5, 6, 16, 64, 67 and 72 trams) along a 2km stretch between Commercial Road and the Shrine of Remembrance, from 6 April - 17 April.
All route 58 trams will be replaced by buses for around 600 metres between Toorak Road West (Fawkner Park) and Park Street, from 1 April (8pm)- 17 April (last tram).
These works will realign tram tracks and traffic lanes around the new construction site being established near the Domain Interchange. This will ensure St Kilda Road remains accessible while major road excavation and above ground works take place for up to four years.
See the Construction in Domain page for more details.
