Grattan Street changes

Works in preparation for the new Parkville Station are underway with Grattan Street closed to traffic.

On 22 February 2018, Grattan Street (between Royal Parade and Leicester Street) and Barry Street (between Pelham Street and Grattan Street) closed to vehicles for up to five years.

There will also be no vehicle access from Grattan Street into Berkeley Street, although Berkeley Street will remain open at Pelham Street.

We encourage motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to take care when travelling around the area. Traffic controllers are out and about to assist pedestrians and cyclists as well as signage placed at various locations directing vehicles.

Please follow these instructions to ensure everyone’s safety. We will continue to monitor traffic flow and safety and make changes accordingly.

See the Transport changes in Parkville page for details.
