We’ve completed upgrades to major intersections to improve traffic flow on Hoddle Street and Punt Road.


In October 2018, we started major works on Punt Road at:

  • Swan Street
  • Olympic Boulevard
  • Brunton Avenue

As part of these works, we built Victoria’s first Continuous Flow Intersection at Punt Road and Swan Street in March 2019. Works were completed in September 2019, two months ahead of schedule.

Buses, trains and trams

As part of this project, we’ve made improved safety and access to public transport. Since October 2018, we’ve:

  • permanently removed the eastbound tram Stop 7E on Olympic Boulevard
  • permanently removed the westbound tram Stop 7D on Swan Street
  • upgraded both Punt Road bus stops
  • built a new, twin-platform tram stop for both directions at the corner of Punt Road and Swan Street
  • installed new pedestrian lights
  • created wider and separated walking and cycling paths all around the area.

Car parking and clearways

In April 2017, we added and extended clearway times along Punt Road and Hoddle Street.

As part of the second stage of the project, in May 2019 we extended clearways to 24/7 along Swan Street between Botherambo Street and Punt Road. To support these works, we’ve changed parking outside Richmond Station from angle to parallel.
