Riders should be aware of upcoming maintenance activities on the busy Merri Creek Creek Trail between the Brunswick Velodrome and Ceres.

CitiPower is undertaking critical maintenance work on the overhead powerlines, replacing pole top hardware and establishing safe and clear pole access.

Work on the poles will be undertaken over just one night, however this will require considerable resources, including pole trucks, elevated platform vehicles and cranes.

Local roads may be impacted with temporary changes to local traffic conditions with reduced speed limits and traffic management in place.

Work is schedules for early Monday 2 November, between midnight 1 November and 5am, 2 November.
