As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra Trams and Public Transport Victoria are renewing tram tracks at the junction of St Georges Road and Miller Street.
The tram tracks are 30 years old and require renewal. This update will improve several parts of the intersection including:
This new infrastructure will improve operational efficiency for the depot, reduce the chance of derailments and create a smoother road surface for cyclists and tram passengers.
Major track renewal work
Major work will occur at the St Georges Road and Miller Street junction. Works will commence at 12:01 am on Saturday 29 July and will continue 24 hours a day until 5am Tuesday 1 August 2017.
Route 11 tram services will be affected
Bus services will divert around the work zone.
For more details closer to the time, please see latest service changes
Road closures will be in place from 12:01 am Saturday 29 July until 5am Tuesday 1 August 2017.
Southbound traffic on St Georges Road will have two detours from Bell Street.
Detours will be in place for the duration of the works. Traffic controllers will direct traffic and help facilitate local access where needed.
The work zone will be fenced off for safety, however, footpaths will remain open to allow pedestrian access to all businesses located around the work zone.
Noise and dust
Associated noise and dust from machinery, vehicles and work crews is unavoidable, but Yarra Trams will do all it can to keep this to a minimum. The noisiest work will occur between 6am and 1pm on Saturday 29 July, however, there will be a need to conduct noisy work outside these hours to ensure that the work is completed by 5am on Tuesday 1 August 2017.
We advise that this work is being performed in accordance with our obligations to Public Transport Victoria and is necessary to maintain a safe tram network as required by the Rail Safety Act 2006 (Vic).
