Added: 14 February 2018
Delays are expected for bus Routes 216, 219 and 220 from Wednesday 14 February 2018 as St Kilda Road is reduced to one lane in each direction as important Metro Tunnel works continue for Anzac Station.
Passengers should allow extra time for their travel and may wish to consider alternative public transport.
Due to works on St Kilda Road from Friday 6 April to Tuesday 17 April 2018, bus routes 216, 219 and 220 may experience delays up to 30 minutes.
Due to increased traffic on Punt Road during the St Kilda Road works, bus route 246 may experience delays up to 15 minutes.
