As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra
Trams and Public Transport Victoria are renewing the junction of St
Georges Road and Miller Street in Preston.
The tram junction is 30 years old and requires renewal. This
update will improve several parts of the intersection
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.
Major work will occur at the St Georges Road and Miller Street
junction. Works will commence at 12:01 am on Saturday 29 July and
will continue 24 hours a day until 5am Tuesday 1 August 2017.
Route 11 tram services will be affected
from Saturday 29 to Monday 31 July.
Road closures will be in place from 12:01 am Saturday 29 July
until 5am Tuesday 1 August 2017.
Traffic controllers will direct traffic and help facilitate
local access where needed.
The work zone will be fenced off for safety, however, footpaths
will remain open to allow pedestrian access to all businesses
located around the work zone.
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 1pm
on Saturday 29 July, however, there will be a need to conduct noisy
work outside these hours to ensure that the work is completed by
5am on Tuesday 1 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
