Traffic and transport impacts

Oversized deliveries

  • While most deliveries to the Anzac Station site will occur during normal hours, some deliveries to and from site that are classified as ‘oversized’ will be required outside of normal working hours and overnight. Whenever oversized deliveries are expected overnight, crews will be reminded of noise requirements on site.

St Kilda Road southbound

  • From 8pm Sunday 7 April to 6am Saturday 13 April 2024, there will be a 24-hour closure of the southbound lane of St Kilda Road (PDF, 310.4 KB) to allow the construction of the tram tracks connecting into Domain Road. Detours will be in place for traffic, cyclists and pedestrians. To reduce impacts to traffic these works will be timed to coincide with the school holidays, and local business access will be maintained. Further detail will be provided closer to the works commencing.
