Metro Tunnel – Town Hall Station works
Monday 23 March to Sunday 29 March 2020
Date and time
Monday 23 March to Sunday 29 March, first to last tram.
Reason for service changes
Service changes will apply to City Circle, Route 70 and Route 75 trams due to Metro Tunnel construction of Town Hall Station.
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.
No City Circle, Route 70 or Route 75 trams run between Stop 4 Flinders Street Station, Elizabeth Street and Stop 6 Russell Street.
Passengers may walk around 10 minutes / 800 metres through Federation Square around the work zone to connect between Stop 4 Flinders Street Station, Elizabeth Street and Stop 6 Russell Street.
The following tram stops will not be serviced during the works:
- Stop 5 Flinders St Station, Swanston Street
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.
