No vehicle access will be permitted during this time.

Pedestrians

The work zone will be fenced off for safety, however footpaths will remain open around the work area to allow pedestrian access to businesses and residences.


Please note that there will be kerb to kerb fencing which will limit pedestrian crossings. These fences are required to ensure public safety.


Crossing points will be facilitated where possible and may change depending on the construction activities taking place. 

Noise and dust

Construction will take place 24-hours a day so that we can complete the works quickly and reduce the period of time that we inconvenience you.

Noise and dust are unavoidable, however we will work to minimise this as much as possible and complete the
noisiest works between 6am and 10pm.

We apologise for the inconvenience this work may cause and appreciate your understanding as we carry out this essential renewal.

Local community

Access to shops, entertainment precincts, and local amenities will remain unchanged during the works.

Yarra Trams encourages you to allow some extra time when planning your journey.

Local businesses

The businesses located around the works area will remain open during the works. Please continue to support your local businesses during these essential infrastructure works.

Pedestrian access to these businesses will remain open at all times.

As this work is necessary to maintain a safe tram network as required by the Rail Management Act 1996 (Vic), Yarra Trams will not compensate any third parties for any losses incurred during the project.
