Changes to St Kilda Road
Work on new tracks that will carry trams around the massive Domain construction site will ramp up next month.
Major work on the new Toorak Road West tram will close lanes on and around St Kilda Road during June and July 2017.
St Kilda Road will reduce to two lanes in each direction between Domain Road and Toorak Road West over the first weekend of June, over the Queen's Birthday long weekend and during the last week of June.
It will then reduce to one lane each way for 11 days from 1 July, with buses replacing trams to ensure passengers can still get where they need to go.
There will also be impacts on Toorak Road West, with the eastbound lane closed between St Kilda Rd and Park St for more than two weeks from 13 June, before this section of Toorak Road West closes completely over the weekend of 1-2 July.
During the school holidays, one eastbound lane will reopen but the westbound lane will remain closed while the new tracks and two stops are built.
Both lanes will reopen on 12 July when Domain Road closes for many years to build the new underground station at Domain.
The new stop on the corner of St Kilda Road and Toorak Road West will mean St Kilda Rd stays two lanes each way between Bowen Crescent and Toorak Road West after the tram works.
Early next year, this part of St Kilda Road will reduce to one lane in each direction and will stay that way for many years while the new underground station at Domain is built.
