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.

In late March we’ll close the slip lane from Punt Road to Swan Street to build a new bus stop in this location. We’ll also build a new traffic island and footpath. In early May we will start building a new accessible tram stop on Swan Street.

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.

To complete these works from Monday 18 March to mid April, we’ve:

  • Closed the pedestrian footpath along Olympic Boulevard at Gosch’s Paddock to build a shared user path.
  • Closed both pedestrian crossings at the Punt Road and Swan Street intersection.

Access to Gosch’s Paddock:

  • Entrances are available from the corner of Swan Street and Punt Road and where the pedestrian detour ends at AAMI Park.

Access to AAMI Park from Swan Street:

  • Walk towards the city on the east side of Swan Street and cross at Olympic Boulevard intersection to continue towards the stadium.

Access the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG):

  • Walk northbound along Punt Road and cross at the east side of the intersection to continue towards Brunton Avenue.

Detours are in place from the Swan Street side of Richmond Station. Use the Stewart Street or Bruton Avenue Station exits to avoid delays.
