The trail along the lower Merri Creek has been replaced with a much superior pathway.
The City of Yarra has reconstructed a 360 metre section of the popular trail between Ida Street and St Georges Road, Fitzroy North through to Bundara Street Park and Merri Creek Primary School.
The path has been widened from 1.5 metres to 3 metres and gradients are less severe.
Although still subject to flooding, the path has been constructed with a cross-fall to ensure that water will quickly drain away.
Landscaping has been designed to prevent any build-up of mud on the trail.
The path is edge line-marked, which helps make the path easier to see and follow in low light.
