As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra
Trams and Public Transport Victoria are renewing tram tracks on
Fitzroy Street, at St Kilda Station Light Rail, St Kilda.
The curved tram tracks within the work-zone are approximately 17
years old and require renewing. The track renewal will improve the
radius of the track reducing noise as trams turn at the
intersection. The renewal will also repair the road surface for
cyclists and tram passengers.
Preliminary work began Monday 5 June between the first and last
trams, 1:30am to 5:30am. This work involved replacing overhead
wires, service proving and other minor civil works. For this work
traffic will be managed but no roads will be closed.
Major work will occur on Fitzroy Street between Balluk William
Court and Canterbury Street (Grey Street). Works will commence
12:01am on Saturday 24 June and will continue 24 hours a day until
5am Tuesday 27 June 2017.
Route 3a, 16 and
96 tram services will be affected
Both bus services will divert around the work zone.
For more details refer to service update
Routes 3a, 16 & 96 - Tram improvement work - Saturday 24 to
Monday 26 June.
Due to the nature of works, access to Fitzroy Street will close
from 12:01 Saturday 24 June until 5am Tuesday 27 June 2017.
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 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 6 am and 10 pm,
however, there will be a need to conduct noisy work outside these
hours to ensure that the work is completed by 5 am on
Tuesday 27 June 2017.
We thank you for your patience and regret any inconvenience
cause by this essential repair work.
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
