We’re upgrading major intersections on Hoddle Street and Punt Road to improve traffic flow.

Need to know

On Sunday 17 March Victoria’s first continuous flow intersection opened at Punt Road and Swan Street.

For more information on how to use to turn right at the new intersection, see the New right turns web page.

Swan Street closure, 19-24 May

We'll close Swan Street between Punt Road and Cremorne Street from 11pm Sunday 19 May to 6am Friday 24 May.

For more information on detour and access options, see the Swan Street Closure page.

Punt Road closure, 20 May

On Monday morning 20 May, we’ll close Punt Road at Swan Street in both directions from 2am to 5am.

These works will allow us to build a new twin-platform accessible tram stop near the corner of Swan Street and Punt Road.

Short detours will be in place with delays of up to 15 minutes expected.


While we work, traffic on Punt Road:

  • heading towards the MCG will use the new continuous flow intersection on Olympic Boulevard to move through the intersection
  • heading towards the river will:
    • turn right onto Olympic Boulevard
    • cross Swan Street Bridge
    • turn left onto Alexandra Avenue
    • return to Punt Road as needed.

Until late 2019 we’ll work to improve driving, public transport, riding and walking facilities at the Punt Road intersections with Swan Street and Brunton Avenue.
