Queens Park Bridge temporary closure

The Queens Park Bridge will be closed to all traffic from 7 am to 6 pm, Sunday 18 May 2014.

The bridge closure is required for construction work on the attached Newtown feeder main, part of an upgrade to the water supply for Newtown and Highton.

We suggest alternative routes via Barrabool or Mount Pleasant Roads between Scenic Road and Aphrasia Street.

Since early April, contractors have been replacing a 990-metre section of pipeline along Queens Park Road, between the golf course and St Joseph’s College. The project is roughly 75% complete, and is on track for completion by the end of June, 2014.
