Metro Tunnel Works - Flinders Street

Sunday 5 July to Sunday 12 July 2020

Date and time

4am Sunday 5 July to 4am Sunday 12 July

Reason for service changes

As part of Victoria’s Big Build, we’re building the Metro Tunnel. The project is taking some of our busiest train lines through a new tunnel under the CBD. It will create room in the City Loop so we can run more trains to and from our suburbs.

Tram service changes

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

You can walk approximately 800 metres / 10 minutes around the work zone to connect between the stops.

Closed stops 

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

  • Stop 4 Flinders Street Station and Elizabeth Street (towards Docklands only)
  • Stop 5 Flinders Street Station and Swanston Street

Alternative travel options

  • Route 70 passengers can consider trains between Flinders Street Station and Richmond Station.
  • Route 75 passengers can consider Hurstbridge/Mernda line trains between Flinders Street Station and Jolimont Station

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.​
