Metro Tunnel works on St Kilda Road

Added: 2 June 2017

To prepare for major construction on the Metro Tunnel, there will be major works on St Kilda Road and Toorak Road West that will affect tram services from first service Saturday 1 July to last service Tuesday, 11 July.

These works are vital to keeping the public transport and road networks moving throughout the entire Metro Tunnel construction period.

Once completed, Route 58 will travel further down St Kilda Road and turn left at Toorak Road instead of Domain Road. This will allow for the closure of Domain Road during Metro Tunnel construction.

During this time:

  • Buses will replace Route 58 trams between Stop 20 Domain Interchange and Stop 139 Glenferrie Road, a distance of approximately 5.8km. 
  • Buses will replace Route 72 trams between Stop 19 Shrine of Remembrance and Stop 26 Alfred Hospital/Commercial Road, a distance of approximately 2.2km.
  • Buses will replace Route 6 trams between Stop 19 Shrine of Remembrance and Stop 27 High Street/St Kilda Road, a distance of approximately 2.6km. 
  • Buses will replace Routes 3, 5, 16, 64 and 67 between Stop 19 Shrine of Remembrance and Stop 25 St Kilda Road / Commercial Road, a distance of approximately 2 km.

Preliminary works may also cause some delays to Route 58 tram services from Tuesday 13 June and Routes 3, 5, 6, 16, 58, 64, 67 and 72 from Monday 26 June. Passengers may wish to consider trains between the city and the suburbs for an uninterrupted journey during this time.

Throughout the preliminary and major works periods, passengers are encouraged to plan their journey ahead of time and allow additional travel time.
