Hoddle Street Streamlining Stage 2

Monday 20 May to Thursday 23 May 2019

Date and time

Monday 20 May to Thursday 23 May, first to last tram

Reason for service changes

Due to road closures associated with works in Swan St near Punt Road.

Service changes

Route 70 trams run in sections, with no trams between Stop 7D AAMI Park and Stop 8 Richmond Station.

Stops not serviced: 

  • Stop 7D AAMI Park (towards Wattle Park only)
  • Stop 7E Punt Rd

After these works Stop 7E Punt Rd will be removed and Stop 8 Richmond Station will be upgraded to a platform stop and relocated closer to Punt Road.

Accessibility changes

During the works the last accessible stops are:

  • Stop 18 Yarra Boulevard (from Wattle Park)
  • Stop 7D AAMI Park (from Waterfront City Docklands)

Alternative travel options

If possible, avoid the area and consider alternative travel options for the duration of the works. You may use trains between the City and Richmond Station or Burnley Station to connect between sections. You may also walk to connect between sections (up to 400 metres / 6 minutes walk).

During the works, trams will run to the normal frequency, however they may not arrive at the scheduled time due to traffic congestion.

We recommend you plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.
