Bridge Road renewal works

Sunday 3 January to Saturday 16 January 2021

Date and time

11pm Sunday 3 January to 5am Saturday 16 January

Reason for service changes

We’re renewing tram tracks and overhead wires along Bridge Road between Church Street and Burwood Road. 

Getting around Bridge Road

The work zone will be fenced off for safety but footpaths will remain open around the work area. Crossing points are limited and will be facilitated where possible. However, these crossing points may change as works progress. Check this page to know the latest location of the crossing points during the occupation.
