City South Tram Line Replacement

When: From Tuesday 7 May 2019

City South tram line replacement

The City South tram line replacement project will replace the existing tracks along King William Street between Victoria Square (at the intersection of Gouger and Angas Street) and South Terrace. The City South tram stop at the intersection of Sturt/Halifax Street and King William Street will be replaced as part of the project.

Design works are underway with construction expected to commence in the second quarter of 2019 and be completed in the third quarter of 2019, weather permitting.

There will be a period of major construction when tram services will be impacted. Substitute buses will be in place during this period between South Terrace and the Entertainment Centre, and to the East End. Trams will operate between Glenelg and South Terrace. 

Early investigation works

Investigation works in preparation for the upgrade of the tram tracks between Victoria Square and South Terrace are scheduled to commence on Tuesday 7 May and be completed by mid-May, weather permitting. These works will occur between the hours of 8pm to 6am. 

Works will involve investigations of existing infrastructure, general underground services, drainage works and traffic signals. 

These works are being undertaken at night in order to minimise the impact to road users and to complete as safely and efficiently as possible. 

These works will commence at the intersection of King William Street and Carrington Street and progress towards South Terrace.

Speed and lane restrictions will be in place in the vicinity of the works, however the road will remain open to the traffic in both directions at all times. A minimum 25km/h speed limit will be in place while the workers are on site.

Public transport services will not be affected.
