Yarra Trams

Flinders St Substation Facade Installation Works

Public Transport Victoria and Yarra Trams will soon be installing a façade around the tram power substation on Flinders Street, opposite Bond Street.

Civil works and facade installation

Civil works to construct footings for the façade have been completed. Construction works to install the permanent substation façade will commence Friday 11 May and will take approximately two weeks.

>   Monday - Friday, 7am - 3pm and weekends, 8am - 4pm (as required)

These works will predominately occur in the area behind a hoarding that is in place on-site and behind scaffolding which will be stalled around the substation.

Night works

Some unavoidable night time activity is scheduled on:

>   Friday 11 May, Saturday 12 May & Tuesday 15 May

These night activities will occur between 8pm - 5am, involving machinery lifting structural steelwork into place.

These night works will require a partial lane closure on the station side of Flinders St and the temporary detour of pedestrian traffic. Please heed warning signs and follow the direction of traffic controllers.
