Tram driver amenity facilities installation - Belford Street, St Kilda

27 November, 2017

Public Transport Victoria (PTV) in partnership with Yarra Trams will soon be installing tram driver amenity facilities in the carpark off Belford Street, St Kilda. These facilities will be for the sole use of Yarra Trams staff from the Route 96 terminus in Acland Street.

What is planned?

A prefabricated structure containing the tram driver amenity facilities will be installed in the Belford Street West Parking Area removing one carpark parallel to Belford Street. Temporary fencing will be installed around the site and some adjacent carparks to allow for construction works, installation and connection to utilities as required. Some of these works will involve the use of machinery including some saw cutting, concrete/asphalt breaking, excavation activities and the pouring of concrete. These works have received local council planning approvals.

Timing

  • These works will occur from Monday 11th December until Wednesday 20th December 2017
  • Work will be from 7.00am - 5.00pm, Monday to Friday
  • No works will occur on weekends.

Traffic

As part of these works, vehicles will be moving to and from the site and at times some temporary footpath closures will be required. Motorists and pedestrians are asked to heed warning signs and follow the direction of traffic controllers and workers.

Minimising impacts for the local community

During these works, residents and traders can expect to hear some construction and vehicle related noise. Works with the most impact will occur in the first days of the schedule and temporary fencing will be removed when no longer required. Our workers will also be mindful of keeping noise to a minimum and respecting the needs of the local community.
