Your new Jolimont/MCG tram stop
As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra Trams and Public Transport Victoria are upgrading the 126 tram stop in preparation for the new vertical primary school in the Ferrars Street Education and Community Precinct.
Stop 126 will be upgraded with new accessible ramp and stairs will be added to the Railway Place side of the stop providing a pedestrian gateway to the local area via Railway Place.
The rehabilitation will increase service reliability, safety and ride comfort for passengers. The platforms will be upgraded to make it a wider, level access tram stop. The shelter will include new LED lighting, platform furniture, passenger information displays and audio bollards with information on tram services.
Preliminary work will commence Thursday 16 November and will involve equipment and material deliveries and preparation of the site. This work will continue as needed from 9am and 5pm between Monday and Friday in two locations.
Major work will occur at the tram tracks between Railway Place and Whiteman Street.
Works will commence at 12:01am on Saturday 9 December and will continue 24 hours a day until 5am Monday 18 December.
Route 96 services will be affected.
For more details closer to the time, please visit our service changes page.
The carparks in Railway Place and Whiteman St will be closed during the work from 16 November to 20 December.
Railway Place will be closed between City Road and Meaden Street on 9 and 10 December and reopen Monday 11 December.
Traffic controllers will direct traffic and help facilitate local access where needed.
Around 20 car parks on Railway Place will be permanently removed to make room for the new accessible ramp and stairs to the tram stop.
The City of Port Phillip is proposing permanent changes to the configuration of Railway Place, on-street parking spaces and streetscapes in the precinct. For more information, visit the City of Port Phillip Ferrars Precinct web page.
The work zone will be fenced off for safety. Signage will direct pedestrians and cyclists to alternative paths during the major work.
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 10pm; however there may be a need to conduct noisy work outside these hours to ensure that the work is completed by 5am on Monday 18 December 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).
