GOLD MEMORIAL Road will be closed to traffic on May 10 to install three speed humps.
Anyone planning to circumvent the Yarra Street gridlock should be aware that, for at least one day, this detour will not be available.
Rachelle Quattrocchi, Manningham Council’s Director of City Services said the road will be closed between 7am and 5pm while works are occurring.
“This should be one day only, depending on weather,” she said.
The road will be closed to traffic at Harris Gully Road and Husseys Lane.
“We intend to maintain access for local residents for the period of the works with some potential delays,” said Mc Quattrocchi.
She told the Diary, that access to the Gold Memorial carpark will be available at all times but the direction may change during the day depending on the speed hump being installed.
Traffic guidance will be on hand to direct as required.
Access for Emergency vehicles will be maintained.
She said the road is only closed to vehicular traffic.
“Pedestrians, cyclists and horses would be able to go through.”
