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.
