Sims Street loop alert

Riders who use the Sims Street loop connection between Footscray Road and the east side Maribyrnong River Trail should be alert to a minor traffic change from tomorrow.

The alignment of the temporary path connection will curve slightly further out, but otherwise will be little changed. (see green path on map)

There will be new signage and convex mirror for added safety.

Considerable works related to the West Gate Tunnel are underway in the precinct.

This is also the location where the future Veloway into the CBD will join Shepherd Bridge.

That work will soon start on the infrastructure elements that will support that connection, and further traffic changes are imminent.

This is a busy section of the route into the CBD, with many trucks crossing the trail.

Considerable care will be need by all path and road users in the precinct in the coming months.
