Metro Tunnel - Flinders and Degraves Street Works

Monday 9 September to Thursday 12 September 2019

Date and time

Monday 9 September to Thursday 12 September, 9pm to last tram each night.

Reason for service changes

Service changes will apply to Route 70 and Route 75 trams due to Metro Tunnel works near Flinders and Degraves Street.

The Metro Tunnel will allow for over half a million extra trips on the rail network during peak periods each week and cut travel times by up to 50 minutes. It will also help take cars off our busy roads. Thanks for your patience as we prepare the network for the Metro Tunnel.

Service changes

Route 70 and Route 75 trams run in sections, with no trams between Stop 4 Flinders Street Station and Stop 6 Russell Street.

Passengers may walk around 7 minutes / 500 metres through Federation Square around the work zone to connect between Stop 4 Flinders Street Station and Stop 6 Russell Street.

Closed stops

The following tram stops will not be serviced during the works:

  • Stop 5 Flinders St Station

Alternative travel options

  • Passengers may consider trains between Flinders Street Station and Richmond Station (Route 70) or Jolimont Station (Route 75) to connect between sections.

During the works, trams run to the normal frequency; however they may not arrive at the scheduled time. We encourage you allow extra time for your journey.
