Route 70 - Saturday 9 to Monday 11 June

As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra Trams will be renewing tram tracks in Swan Street between Park Grove and Yarra Boulevard from Saturday 9 to Monday 11 June 2012.

Route 70 tram services between Waterfront City Docklands and Wattle Park will operate as Route 70a - Wattle Park via Bridge Rd - diverting via Flinders Street, Wellington Parade, Bridge Road, Burwood Road and Power Street in both directions.

Special Swan Street shuttle tram services will operate as Route 70a between Stop 5 Elizabeth and Flinders Streets, and a temporary tram stop near Park Grove and Swan Street. This shuttle service is for customers heading to or from Swan Street Richmond and Burnley.

The following tram stops will not be serviced during these works:

  • Stop 16 Park Grove and Swan Street (towards City use temporary stop nearby)
  • Stop 17 Madden Grove and Swan Street
  • Stop 18 Yarra Boulevard and Swan Street
  • Stop 19 Morang and Wallen Roads
  • Stop 20 Power Street and Wallen Road (towards Wattle Park only - use stop in Power Street at Wallen Road interchange)

Due to these changes, tram services will operate to their normal frequency however, they may not arrive at the scheduled time. Yarra Trams suggests that you allow extra time for your journey.

Customers that want to travel from Swan Street to Riversdale Road should consider changing to a Route 78/79 tram in Church Street to connect with the Route 70a to Wattle Park in Bridge Road, or catch a Metro Trains service.
