Ride clear of Docklands tram works

A major upgrade of tram infrastructure on Harbour Esplanade at Docklands is not expected to impact the bike trail along the harbour.

Yarra Trams and the PTV are replacing the tracks between Bourke Street and Collins Street, Docklands.

This section of tram track has been identified for urgent maintenance to deliver quieter infrastructure, improved ride, comfort and safety.

The Esplanade will be closed from 11.50pm Friday 1 October to 5am Sunday 3 October 2021.

No vehicle access will be permitted during this time.

However, the bike and pedestrian paths will remain open, including Collins Street through the intersection.

The works will be noisy and dusty.

The work zone will be fenced off for safety.

There will be some road closures in and around work zone, parking space removal, and traffic management will be in place.

Crossing points will be facilitated where possible and may change depending on the construction activities taking place.
