Buses replace trams on St Kilda Road

Posted: 08 Oct 2019

From the evening of Sunday 13 October, until Sunday 27 October, buses replace trams along St Kilda Road between the Shrine of Remembrance (stop 19) and Commercial Road (stop 25). During this period, St Kilda Road will remain open to vehicles and cyclists.

Buses will replace Routes 3, 3a, 5, 6, 16, 58, 64, 67 and 72 along St Kilda Road. Buses also replace Route 6 trams along High Street, due to tram track renewal works along High Street.

Construction works will be undertaken 24/7 to minimise the amount of time that buses are replacing trams.
