Article posted: May 23, 2016
It’s been a busy month of competitions in Camberwell, with winners announced for our Autumn Style Junction Lookbook competition and our Mother’s Day competition.
We’ve also got a few new shops that have opened across the shopping precinct in recent weeks, and an important announcement regarding some tram maintenance works that will impact shoppers for a couple of days in June.
Tram works to close roads in Camberwell
Visitors to Camberwell are advised that tram improvement works will be taking place in June and it will affect some road access.
As part of the modernisation of Melbourne’s tram network, Yarra Trams and Public Transport Victoria will repair tram track and overhead wires at Camberwell Junction from Saturday, June 11 to Tuesday, June 14.
Major maintenance works will be carried out at the entrance of the Camberwell Tram Depot in Riversdale Rd, with additional overhead wire maintenance to take place in Burke Rd.
Shops and services in the Camberwell Precinct will remain open during the works period and continue trading as normal.
