Traffic changes around Domain
Changes have been made to allow 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.
Tunnel boring machine (TBM) pieces and other specialised construction equipment are classed as oversized.
Oversized deliveries to the future Anzac station site will occur throughout the construction period and must take place in the early morning to minimise impact on the road and tram networks.
St Kilda Road will be closed between 1am and 5am as shown in the map below to facilitate oversized deliveries.
During these deliveries there will be a detour in place via Kings Way. Local access along St Kilda Road will be maintained.
Oversized deliveries will cause some periods of noise. All delivery trucks and equipment will be fitted with reverse broadband beepers and will not be unloaded until after 7am (unless other notification has been given).
Closures will occur from 1am to 5am on the following dates:
- 1 April
- 2 April
Changes to Pedestrian Access
Some short-term pedestrian detours are required as works continue on the footpath between Bowen Crescent and Albert Road South to tie in the new sections of asphalt into the existing footpath levels.
- Access to local buildings will be maintained at all times.
- Please see signage and detour maps in the area during these footpath closures.
- The former Domain Interchange is now closed and the replacement stop north of Park Street is active.
- The former Bowen Crescent tram stop has been removed.
- A new stop on Park Street replaces the stop previously located at the intersection of Kings Way and Park Street.
Major works completed in April 2018 and October 2019
Works to realign the traffic, tram and bicycle lanes took place on St Kilda Road in April 2018 and again in October 2019.
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.
