Metro Tunnel

Changes to St Kilda Road

Changes have been made in preparation for major construction of the Metro Tunnel and new Anzac Station.

Significant changes to pedestrian, cyclist, public transport and vehicle movements have been made and will remain in the area for several years.

Major works in April 2018

Works to realign the traffic, tram and bicycle lanes took on St Kilda Road in April 2018.

These changes were required to establish our St Kilda Road work site and to divert trams and other traffic around the Anzac Station construction site.

  • Reduced to one lane in each direction between Dorcas Street and Toorak Road West.
