As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra
Trams will be renewing the tram overhead cables at the intersection
of Spencer and Bourke Sts (Melway ref: 1A - A5 ). These works need
to be conducted prior to the renewal of tram tracks in Spencer St
over the Easter/ANZAC Day long weekend (21 to 27 April).
The overhead power works
will be carried out in the evenings and on weekends to minimise
inconvenience to passengers and motorists as shown below:
• Monday 4 to Thursday 7 April - each night from 10:00pm to
• Sunday 10 April from 2:00am to 12:00pm (midday)
• Monday 11 to Thursday 14 April - each night from 10:00pm to
Associated noise from
machinery and work crews will be unavoidable but Yarra Trams will
do all it can to keep this to a minimum. We anticipate the noise to
be similar to that of your regular garbage collection.
During the works the road and intersection will be partially
closed to traffic and detours will be in place. Traffic controllers
will be on duty around the work area to assist motorists and
pedestrians. The below table outlines road closures during the
Northbound - one lane open for through traffic. No right turn
into Bourke Street.
Southbound - all lanes closed to traffic. Detours via Lonsdale
Street and King Street.
Full closure between King and Spencer Streets. Westbound traffic
detoured via King St into either Lt Collins or Lt Bourke
