Your new Jolimont/MCG tram stop
As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra Trams and Public Transport Victoria are improving the 125a tram stop and entrances to Southbank Depot.
Yarra trams will be undertaking essential renewal work for tram tracks improving the entrance to the depot, installing new track switches and improving passenger stop facilities at stop 125a. The work includes:
This new infrastructure will improve operational efficiency for the depot, reduce the chance of derailments and create a smoother road surface for cyclists and tram passengers.
Preliminary renewal work
Preliminary work will commence Monday 31 July and will involve equipment and material deliveries and preparation of the site. This work will continue as needed during business hours.
Major renewal work
Works will commence at 12:01am on Thursday 10 August and will continue 24 hours a day until 5am Monday 14 August 2017.
Major work will occur in three areas:
Route 12, 30, 35, 96, 109 and Tram Restaurant services will be affected
For more details closer to the time, please see latest service changes
For preliminary work, traffic will be managed but no roads will be closed.
A partial road closure will be in place on Normanby Road from 12am Thursday 10 August until 5am Monday 14 July 2017.
Detours will not apply as there are no full road closures. Traffic controllers will direct traffic and help facilitate local access where needed.
Pedestrians and Cyclists
The work zone will be fenced off for safety. During the works access to pedestrian and bike paths around stop 125a and stop 126 will change. Signage will direct pedestrians and cyclists to alternative paths.
Noise and dust
Associated 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 6am and 10pm; however there may be a need to conduct noisy work outside these hours to ensure that the work is completed by 5am Monday 14 August 2017.
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 2006 (Vic).
