What's happening

July to August 2020

Normanby Road, Caulfield

As part of the Metro Tunnel works to construct the eastern tunnel entrance in South Yarra, we will be installing retaining walls along Normanby Road. The retaining walls will be used to support cables and rail signals that will power the new trains.

These works will occur:

  • Monday 20 July to Friday 14 August
  • 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday
  • 7am to 1pm, Saturday.

These works are expected to generate medium levels of noise, with some periods of high-level noise.

A lane closure will be required to safely distance local traffic from equipment while it is in use.

Some parking will temporarily be removed during this time to allow for two-way traffic on Normanby Road. Traffic management will be in place to manage this safely.
