The shared path connection along Dudley Street, West Melbourne, between Footscray Road and Adderley Street may be busier than usual from next week.
The shared path is on the north side of Dudley Street and there is a footpath on the south side
The pedestrian path on the south side will be closed for six to nine months, shifting pedestrians to the north side.
The shared path on the north side of the street is the only advised route for bikes making the connection to and from Footscray Road as the as the Dudley St traffic lanes at that point are unsuitable for bikes.
The closure, starting at 7:00pm on next Tuesday 14 September is part of the Wurundjeri Way Extension works for the West Gate Tunnel Project.
