Melbourne’s Domain Road will be closed for up to five years to make way for the new Domain Station, as part of the Melbourne Metro Tunnel project.
The road is now closed between St Kilda Road, and the Western edge of Edmund Herring Oval.
Over the past fortnight, the government took advantage of the quieter holiday period as part of a construction blitz on road and rail projects across the state.
During this period, 4kms of new tram tracks, including two new stations, were completed along St Kilda and Toorak Roads to ensure tram route 58 can continue to operate during the Domain road closures.
St Kilda Road, the major route into the city, was reduced to one lane of traffic and trams were stopped between July 1 and 11 to accommodate the construction work.
The $11 billion dollar Melbourne Metro Tunnel project, will include five new underground stations across 9-kilometres of rail tunnels from South Kensington to South Yarra, via the CBD.
The line will run from the north-west to the south-east and combine the Sunbury line with the Cranbourne/Pakenham line.
The Melbourne Metro Rail Authority explained that: “By taking our busiest train lines through a new tunnel under the city, the metro tunnel will free up space in the city loop to run more trains in and out of the city.”
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said: “We make no apologies for building the trains, trams and roads Victorians need to get home safer and sooner.
“This massive construction blitz will be disruptive – so plan ahead, consider alternative routes and allow more time to get where you need to go,” Premier Andrews concluded.
