Traffic Alert St Kilda Junction tram works

19 July 2019

Yarra Trams is conducting important track upgrades at the St Kilda Junction over the next 9 days, with road and lane closures in place starting on Friday 19 July.

From 8pm Friday to 5am Monday, the Melbourne-bound lanes of St Kilda Road close from Alma Road to Punt Road. Only two outbound lanes remain open.

Fitzroy Street also closes in both directions between Lakeside Drive and the junction.

We suggest drivers divert from the citybound lanes as early as possible, with Hawthorn Road and Dandenong Road, or Beach Road providing good alternatives.

Following the weekend works, there will be lane restrictions in all directions until Sunday 28 July.

Trams on routes 3, 16 and 67 will be affected, with buses operating instead.

The VicRoads signals team will closely monitor traffic conditions, tweaking light sequences where needed to help ease congestion.

VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria thank motorists and passengers for their patience during these critical works.
