Public Transport Notice

Due to the construction of the Metro Tunnel, St Kilda Road is experiencing major roadworks and this is causing huge delays and will do for the foreseeable future. This will particularly be the case between 1-11th July where only one road lane each side of the road will be functioning and trams will not be running.

Please take this into account when planning your journey to our St Kilda Rd office as this will affect the movement of cars and public transport and may also affect parking.

For more information, refer to the PTV Tram Service Changes St Kilda Rd & Toorak Rd.
