Major Harbour Esplanade disruptions this month

26 Oct 2010

Works to transform Harbour Esplanade are progressing well, with the tram works scheduled to finish this month.

The first stage of the Harbour Esplanade redevelopment, between Bourke St and Docklands Drive, is due for completion in the first half of 2011.

Four new tram platform stops have been installed between Bourke St and Docklands Drive.

From Saturday, November 20 all tram services will run in the new configuration.

Harbour Esplanade will need to close to vehicular traffic and trams to finalise the new tram track works, and transfer the tram services to the new tram tracks in the centre of the road. These works are scheduled to occur from 12am Saturday, November 13 until 5am Saturday, November 20.

The following changes will be in place during this time:

Road closures

Harbour Esplanade will be closed to vehicle traffic between Collins St and Dudley St;

LaTrobe St will be closed to vehicle traffic between Spencer St and Harbour Esplanade; and

Bourke St will be closed to vehicle traffic between Batman Hill Drive and Harbour Esplanade and will reopen to east/west traffic from 5am Wednesday, November 17 allowing Bourke St access to and from Victoria Harbour.

Tram service changes

For the duration of the works the following service changes will apply:

City Circle trams will run via Spencer St. They will not service the Docklands area;

Route 30 will terminate at LaTrobe and Spencer streets;

Routes 70 and 75 will terminate at Flinders St West (near Spencer St);

Route 86 will terminate at LaTrobe and Spencer streets; and

Services to tram route 48 will not be affected.

A tram replacement bus will operate during the works. The bus will run in a loop between Docklands Drive and Waterfront Way travelling along Wurundjeri Way, Bourke St, Batman’s Hill Drive, Flinders St, Spencer St, Dudley St, Footscray Rd and Waterfront Way.

Further information will be provided shortly and will also be displayed online at yarratrams.com.au.
