Riders on Bourke Road, Camberwell will be impacted by upcoming tram track maintenance works and road closures.

Later next week the area between Camberwell Road and Cotham Road, including the shopping strip, will be closed in sections.

This work is due to take place from 11.50pm Friday 23 July to 5am Monday 26 July 2021.

Works will include the replacement of tram tracks, poles and overhead wiring.

There will be road closures in and around work zone, parking removal and traffic management in place.

No vehicle access will be permitted during this time.

The work zone will be fenced off for safety, however footpaths will remain open around the work area to allow pedestrian access to businesses and residences.

Crossing points will be facilitated where possible and may change depending on the construction activities taking place.

The businesses located around the works area will remain open during the works.

Riders wishing to access local businesses and facilities can navigate through local streets and walk their bikes via the footpaths and laneways.
