TimingWhere What is happening

2 April-May 2019

Grattan Street West

To prepare for service relocations on Grattan Street west later this year, service investigations are required between Flemington Road and Royal Parade, as well as on Elizabeth Street/Royal Parade.

There will be temporary, staged lane closures required during service investigations including a closure of the northbound service lane on Royal Parade/Elizabeth Street from Haymarket roundabout to just north of the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Vehicle access, including for emergency services, will be maintained at all times.

These works are expected to generate medium to high levels of noise associated with non-destructive digging (NDD) and saw cutting works.
