Closure of Merri Creek Bridge at Walker Street

9 January 2017

The bridge over the Merri Creek between Walker Street and Rushall Train Station, will be temporarily closed due to bank reconstruction works being undertaken by Darebin Council.

These are essential safety works to manage the subsiding creek bank and involve the removal of road pavement and associated road drainage, excavation works, construction of retention systems, and reconstruction of road pavement and footpaths.

The bridge will be closed from 30 January, and the works are expected to take approximately 3 months. During the works there will be no through access from Walker Street to McLachlan Street.

Pedestrians and bike riders: Please take an alternative route via Koonda Lat Bridge or High Street Bridge. See Alternative Route Map for details.

Train users: Merri, Westgarth and Clifton Hill Train Stations are an easy walking distance.
