A new substation for St Kilda Junction

Passengers disembarking tram

Public Transport Victoria (PTV) and Yarra Trams are building a new tram power substation on St Kilda Road, St Kilda. These power upgrade works are part of the Victorian Government’s $1.3 billion investment in new trams and modern infrastructure to help cater for the future demand of Melbourne’s tram network.

This substation will be similar to other substations across the network and has been strategically placed to provide power to nearby tram routes 3/3a, 5, 16, 64 and 67. The substation will be housed within a fully enclosed building that will include architectural features to minimise visual impact and to help the structure blend in with the surrounding environment.

This landscaped design with timber and steel elements was chosen by 72% of respondents with many telling us that they liked a green approach that blended in with the surrounding area, including other vegetation within the junction.

    PTV and Yarra Trams will now proceed with developing this approach in line with community feedback and in collaboration with the City of Port Phillip.
