FYI - Just received this communication from Darebin Council.
I would like to provide warning that we will need to close the St Georges Rd shared path for one day for essential maintenance. Heavy machinery is required for these works and make the path unsafe for use during this period.
*Where is the closure: St Georges Rd shared path from Normanby, Ave Thornbury to Arthurton Rd, Northcote
*When will it be closed: Saturday the 23 of March 8 am to 4 pm.
*Walkers - use the footpaths either side of Normanby Avenue or the grass between the path and the tram tracks.
*Cyclists - please use an alternative route, or dismount and walk on the grass between Normanby Ave and Arthurton Rd.
Alternative cycling routes will be dependent on origin and destination, but the quiet streets parallel to the South Morang rail line and Merri Creek are the closest north south routes:
West side of St Georges Rd - Leinster Grove / Beavers Rd / Woolhouse St parallel to the Merri Creek
East side of St Georges Rd – Spencer St / Railway Pde / Latham St
Please forward this information to all relevant stakeholders for wide distribution to users of the path.
