Lane closures – From May 2019

There will be staged eastbound lane closures on La Trobe Street between Swanston and Elizabeth streets. Detours will be in place for motorists and cyclists.

Access to businesses and residential buildings will be maintained at all times, and 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.


From 5 August to 18 August there will be a 24 hour eastbound closure of La Trobe Street.


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