Metro Works - Sandringham line - Tuesday 21 May to Sunday 9 June 2019

Tuesday 21 May to Sunday 9 June 2019

Metro works: buses replace trains

Date and time

Tuesday 21 May to Sunday 9 June 2019

Service Changes

Major construction works are taking place on the Sandringham train line. An increased demand for tram services and delays due to traffic congestion is expected during this time

Increased demand is expected on Route 3/3a, 5, 6, 16, 58, 64, 67 and 78 trams.

Key impacted areas

We expect to see higher than usual demand for tram services or delays due to extra traffic at key locations, including:

  • Carlisle Street/Balaclava Road on the Route 3/3a and 16
  • Prahran Station on the Route 6
  • South Yarra Station/Toorak Rd on the Route 58
  • Elsternwick Station/Glen Huntly Road on the Route 67
  • Glen Eira Rd/Brighton Rd on the Route 67
  • Windsor Station on the Route 5, 64 and 78
  • Flinders St Station/Swanston St for St Kilda Rd trams

Alternative travel options

We encourage tram passengers to consider alternative options for travel where possible, in order to avoid crowds and potential delays during the works. 

  • Passengers can connect to Bus 605 at Stop 46 Kooyong Rd/Balaclava Rd (on the Route 3/3a and 16) which travels from Gardenvale to Flagstaff Station.
  • Bus 606 from Elsternwick Station to Victoria Avenue, connecting at Stop 30 Richardson Street/Victoria Avenue for Route 1 trams into the city.
  • Bus 246 from Elsternwick Station to Richmond Station via St Kilda, travelling along Punt Rd.
  • Passengers may also consider 216 219 or 220 buses between Elsternwick Station/Orrong Rd and Alfred Hospital, changing at Alfred Hospital/Commercial Rd to connect to St Kilda Rd trams into the city.

We encourage you to plan ahead and allow extra time for your tram journey or consider alternative travel options where possible.
