If you’re planning to carry out works on or around the Melbourne tram network you may require a permit.

Works that may require a permit include:

  • Works near, above or below tram tracks
  • Works on roads with tram tracks
  • Works that require traffic to be diverted onto roads with tram tracks
  • Works within 20 metres of a tram stop
  • Works around any other Yarra Trams assets
