Long term traffic changes

Lane closures

The eastbound lanes on La Trobe Street will be reduced to one between Elizabeth and Swanston Street for vehicles for up to three years, with the northern footpath closed for pedestrians during this time.

Access to businesses and residential buildings will be maintained at all times. Traffic management will be in place to safely guide motorists, pedestrians and cyclists around work areas.

During the closures, underground service relocation works will take place to construct the underground pedestrian connection between Melbourne Central Station and the future State Library Station.

A speed limit reduction to 30kph along the eastbound lane in February 2020.


Pedestrians can access the La Trobe Street tram stop via Swanston Street, and Melbourne Central via the underground passageway (by lifts or stairs).
