Effective 10 May 2017 (till new route 605 is implemented)

Due to current works on the Swan Street Bridge, Route 605 will undergo a temporary route change from 10 May 2017 till the new route 605 is implemented.

This will allow the 605 to provide coverage along Domain Road due to the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA) Domain Station construction works and removal of Route 8 tram on Domain Road.

Due to the current vehicle congestion and delays along Olympic Boulevard and Batman Avenue, Route 605 INBOUND will travel north on Punt Road, Turn Left onto Brunton Avenue (west bound)/ Jolimont Road and then Left onto Wellington Parade South continuing onto Flinders Street and then resumes its normal route.

On major event days at the MCG where Brunton Avenue closes, Route 605 will continue along Punt Road, turn Left (westbound) onto Wellington Parade and continue onto Flinders Street where is resumes its normal route.

Please note, Outbound journeys on the 605 are not affected.

Transport Safety Victoria and BusVic will again deliver Victoria’s Bus Safety Week in 2017, from Monday May 1 to Friday May 5. CDC Victoria along with CDC Melbourne, CDC Geelong and CDC Ballarat will be supporting this campaign.

The campaign will be a joint regulator/industry initiative that aims to reinforce these integral messages:

  1. Increase awareness of the good safety record of bus travel;
  2. That “Safety is a shared responsibility” - we all have a role to play in improving the experience for all.

The week will include:

  • Bus driver appreciation day on Thursday May 4 – Remember to say ‘Hello’ and ‘Thank you’ to your driver
  • Promotional/educational activities at multiple bus interchanges across the metropolitan area and regional centres (see below for details)
  • Safety education sessions at metropolitan and regional schools
  • Promotion/education on board buses by Multi Modal Authorised Officers on the network.

Promotional Activities

Bus Safety Week will involve promotional activities by BAV, TSV, Victoria Police and PTV’s Multi Modal Authorised Officers with support from CDC staff at major bus interchanges at metropolitan locations and regional centres. Those in attendance will handout educational brochures and giveaways while talking to people about bus safety.
