Your new Jolimont/MCG tram stop
Public Transport Victoria (PTV) in partnership with Yarra Trams will be soon installing a new cable pit and conduits in the tram network at the St Kilda Road, St Kilda Junction. These works are a part of upgrading our infrastructure to cater for the future demand on Melbourne's tram network.
What is planned?
A new cable pit will be installed between the tram tracks, along with connecting conduits to underneath the tram tracks and pole infrastructure. The early part of this work will involve use of heavy machinery to undertake saw cutting, concrete/asphalt breaking and excavation activities.
The tram tracks and the adjacent area in the indicated
work zone will be occupied from:
Minimising impacts for the local community
During this time, residents and traders can expect to hear vehicle-related and construction noise from within the St Kilda Junction median strip as indicated. Associated noise and dust from machinery, vehicles and work crews is unavoidable. 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 work is completed as scheduled. Our workers will be mindful of keeping noise to a minimum and respecting the needs of the local community.
During works Route 67 trams will operate as Route 67a, with buses replacing trams between Stop 29 Union St & Stop 38 Brunning St. Please note that Stop 30 St Kilda Junction will not be serviced by replacement buses. Passengers should refer to signage and information on trams and at affected stops. For further information, also visit yarratrams.com.au/servicechanges .
Temporary lane and footpath closures may be required during these works. Please heed warning signs and follow the direction of traffic controllers and workers as required.
PTV and Yarra Trams are committed to keeping the local community informed of construction activity. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this important upgrade work.
