Changes to public transport

From 12 July

New tram infrastructure has been delivered to help keep our trams moving during Metro Tunnel construction. The new infrastructure includes rerouting tram Route 58 to Toorak Road West, and new tram stops on St Kilda Road and Toorak Road West.

Normal tram services resumed on 12 July.

There will be minor works to complete the new tram platforms until August.

From 25 June 2017, Route 605 was rerouted to travel along Anderson Street and Birdwood Avenue into the western end of the CBD, along Queen Street as far as La Trobe Street. The new route allows passengers to connect to trams along St Kilda Road, as well as trains at Flagstaff Station.

Pedestrians and cyclists

Pedestrian and cycling access will be maintained along St Kilda Road while Metro Tunnel tram works are underway.

People walking and cycling in the area should remain alert to the changed conditions and follow the safety directions of traffic management staff.
