Major closure on Flinders Street

Eastbound lanes on Flinders Street between Elizabeth and Swanston streets will close to traffic for up to three years, from Monday 2 September 2019.

The closure is needed to build an underground connection from Flinders Street Station to the new Town Hall Station. The interchange will be built underneath Flinders Street, between Swanston Street and Degraves Street, and requires above-ground construction work.

Trams will continue to operate in both directions except for six days from 2-7 October 2019, when construction piling is required close to the tram network.

The footpath will remain open along Flinders Street, past Degraves Street, and to the station construction site.

Pedestrian and vehicle access will be maintained for local businesses and residents. Loading bays will also be available east of Elizabeth Street for deliveries and drop-offs.

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and use alternate routes.
