Yarra Trail disruptions in CBD

A section of path along the Yarra River north bank through the city is to be reconstructed, resulting in disruptions to riders and walkers who use the area.

The City of Melbourne has brought forward work on Wednesday 2 June on building the new pathway along the back of Flinders Street Station, under Princes Bridge and through to Birrarung Marr.

The accelerated program is to take advantage of the quiet period during lockdown.

The project is expected to take about eight days, weather permitting.

Work will be from 7am to 7pm on weekdays with some night works between 9pm and 6am.

To enable these construction works to proceed safely and efficiently, there will be a need for temporary road/lane closures.

There will be noise disruptions due to the machinery used and saw cutting activities.

Riders are advised to cross over to the south side of the Yarra at Queensbridge or over Princes Bridge and use Yarra Promenade, depending on direction of travel.

Signage will be in place.
