As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra Trams and Public Transport Victoria are repairing tram tracks in Parkville at Flemington Road between Eliott Avenue and Gatehouse Street. New automatic signal points will also be installed at the Elliott Avenue intersection.
The tracks in the work zone are over 50 years old and areas need to be repaired. The repairs will increase service reliability, safety and ride comfort for passengers. This signal upgrade will improve operational efficiency and reduce the chance of derailments.
Major work will occur in Parkville on Flemington Road:
Major works will commence at 12:01 am on Saturday 26 May and will continue 24 hours a day until 5am Tuesday 29 May.
Route 57, 58 and 59 services will be affected.

Weekend road access

Left-in left-out turns only will be in place on Melrose Street, Curran Street, Dryburgh Street and Abbosford Street.

Finishing works will continue from 5am Monday 28 May until 5am Tuesday 29 May 2018 to road access will apply from circa 5am Monday 30 April until circa 5am Tuesday 1 May 2018:
The work zone will be fenced off for safety however footpaths will remain open around the work area to allow pedestrian access to businesses and residences located around the work zone.
Signage and fencing will clearly mark changes to footpath access during the project.
Noise and dust
Associated noise and dust from machinery, vehicles and work crews will be unavoidable but we'll do all we can to keep this to a minimum. The noisiest work will occur between 6am and 10pm; however there may be a need to conduct noisy work outside these hours to ensure that the work is completed by 5am on Tuesday 29 May 2018.
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).
