As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra
Trams and Public Transport Victoria are rehabilitating tram tracks
at the Sydney Road and Moreland Road junction.
The tracks in the work-zone are 16 years old and need to be
rehabilitated. Automatic track switches will be installed to change
tram track direction. Redundant rail will be removed on Sydney Road
to create a smoother road surface. The rehabilitation will increase
service reliability, safety and ride comfort for passengers.
Major work will occur at
Works will commence at 2:01 am on Saturday 18 November and will
continue 24 hours a day until 5am Tuesday 21 November 2017.
Route 6 and 19 services will be affected.

Routes 6 and 19 tram service changes page.
Due to the nature of works, there will be two road closures in
place from 2:01 am Saturday 18 November until 4am Monday 20
From 4am Monday 20 November Moreland Road will be reopened with
no left or right turn into Sydney Road. These closures will apply
until 5am Tuesday 21 November 2017.
During the project, there will be no parking on Sydney Road
between Albion Street and Moreland Road.
The work zone will be fenced off for safety however footpaths
will remain open to allow pedestrian access to all busiensses
location around the work zone.
Associated noise and dust from machinery, vehicles and work
crews is unavoidable but Yarra Trams will do all it can to keep
this to a minimum. The noisiest work will occur between 6am and
10pm; however there may be a need to conduct noisy work outside
these hours to ensure that the work is completed by 5am on Tuesday
21 November 2017.
We advise that this work is being performed in accordance with
our obligations to Public Transport Victoria and is necessary to
maintain a safe tram network as required by the Rail Safety Act
