Green Spine works update - week commencing 4 June 2018

Friday, 1 June 2018

The following works are planned:

  • commence asphalting road, weather permitting
  • commence paving on the Malop Street south/Moorabool Street corner near the Westpac Bank. There will be no change to current pedestrian diversions for this work.
  • commence paving on the Malop Street north/Moorabool Street corner near the Bendigo Bank. Pedestrians will be diverted as required and wayfinding signage will be in place. Future paving works to be undertaken in Malop Street outside Bendigo Bank will require alternative pedestrian diversion. See maps below.
  • platforms (plinths) for art installations, including one at the mid-block crossing are scheduled to be delivered and installed this week.

Ongoing work

  • continue delivery and installation of street furniture
  • continue installation of steel garden bed surrounds to existing trees
  • continue laying pavers in the strip between the footpath and kerb stones
  • intermittent use of road compacting machinery which is likely to result in ground vibrations being felt during its operation.
  • there will be some noisy work with cutting of pavers
  • there may be some short periods of hammering or cutting.

Pedestrian access

Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained during all trading hours. If access is required outside your normal trading hours, please contact the construction Site Manager with as much notice as possible, so access can be facilitated.

A pedestrian link between Market Square and Westfield shopping centres will continue to be available for all trading hours during the works. Wayfinding signage will be in place to direct pedestrians.

*See information above (and attached maps) regarding the temporary pedestrian diversions near Bendigo Bank.

 


Vehicle access

Malop Street will continue to be closed to all vehicle and cycling traffic between Moorabool and Yarra streets until completion in mid-year.

The Malop Street loading dock to Market Square will not be available for deliveries during the road closure and alternative arrangements have been made for deliveries via the Market Square loading dock in Yarra Street.
