View details of changes to transport in the area from 24 April 2018 (PDF, 5.1 MB).

18 April - 4 May

St Kilda Road

Recent wet weather has delayed several road works activities on St Kilda Road. These works must be undertaken at night when trams are not running.

Tram platform works, footpath placements, overhead alignments, and various other road works will occur out of hours from 18 - 20 April, 6pm to 7am, weekdays and 7am to 7pm, Saturday.

On Sunday 22 April, final asphalting works will be completed from 10pm - 5am. These works will generate medium to low noise.

All works will be complete in advance of Anzac Day services.

Vertical seismic shear wave profiling (VSSP) tests to determine the elastic properties of soil along the tunnel alignment will occur 30 April - 4 May, 11pm to 5am, weekdays.

VSSP testing will take place in an acoustic tent to minimise noise.

For more information, see the works update (PDF, 5.6 MB).

1-18 April

St Kilda Road

Works to realign the traffic, tram and bicycle lanes on St Kilda Road will take place this April.

These works will allow us to establish the construction site for the new Anzac Station in the centre of St Kilda Road, while ensuring road and tram users can
continue to use St Kilda Road and travel on public transport while construction takes place.

Works will be undertaken 24 hours, 7 days per week to minimise disruption to tram services.

Buses will be replacing route 58 trams from 1 – 17 April, and buses replacing all trams on St Kilda Road from 6 –17 April.
