Night closures continue north in Elizabeth Street

Investigations to prepare for major sewer works next year in Elizabeth Street in the CBD are continuing, with night and weekend closures scheduled during August.

For the remainder of the month crews will be moving north from La Trobe Street and working at and around the A’Beckett and Franklin Street intersections for up to 5 shifts at each location.

Works are planned from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, and 6.30 pm to 2.30 am, Monday to Wednesday nights.

There will be closures of the northbound lanes on Elizabeth Street between Lonsdale and Franklin streets.

This will include closures at A’Beckett and Franklin streets, just west of Elizabeth Street. The southbound lanes on Elizabeth Street will remain open.

Traffic management and local detours will be in place to ensure pedestrians, bike riders and vehicles are able to move safely around the area.

Parking spaces adjacent to the work area may be occupied during work hours.

This work will not impact tram services.
