The moving of the North Yarra Main Sewer under Whitehall Street in Footscray and Yarraville gets even more disruptive from next week.
The West Gate Tunnel Project will be starting works near the Somerville Road intersection from next Monday, and lasting for about 12 months.
Whitehall Street northbound will be closed between Leek Street and Somerville Road. Northbound traffic will detour via Leek Street, Hyde Street and Somerville Road.
Most bikes have already detoured away from this area because of associated work further north.
Those that have not should seriously consider taking the Parker St-Hyde Street detour from now on as the impacts on traffic on Whitehall Street will be severe.
Hyde Street truck ban will be lifted from 6am – 8pm Monday – Friday, 6am – 1pm Saturdays (please note, trucks delivering to a local destination will be exempt).
