M40 Construction Update Released (1 December 2016)



M40 Preston Reservoir to Merri Creek - Water Main Renewal Project 
Construction Update - Southern section, December 2016

Melbourne Water is undertaking renewal works on two sections of the M40 
water main and its pipeline connection to the Preston Reservoirs. This 
project is part of our commitment to providing high quality, safe and 
reliable drinking water.

Construction work has commenced along St Georges Road and is expected to 
take twelve months to complete.

Intersection closures - from 1 December 2016

For safety, the un-signalised intersections along St Georges Road from 
Arthurton Road to Normanby Avenue will be closed to all vehicle traffic 
for the duration of the project.

Motorists will not be able to cross St Georges Road at:
- Beavers Road
- Beaconsfield Parade
- Gadd Street
- Woolton Avenue.

Pedestrians will be able to cross the centre-median and St Georges Road 
at Arthurton Road, Gladstone Street, Gadd Street and Normanby Avenue.

This will ensure ongoing access to the tram and bus stops. All other 
pedestrian crossings along St Georges Road will be closed.
Cyclists will be able to access the shared path within the centre-median 
along St Georges Road at Arthurton Road, Gladstone Street, Gadd Street 
and Normanby Avenue.

Signage and traffic controllers will be in place to ensure motorists, 
pedestrians and cyclists can navigate the area safely.

Please follow our signs and instructions from our traffic controllers 
and allow extra time while travelling in this area.

We do not expect there to be any interruptions to bus or Yarra Trams 

As we undertake our work along St Georges Road, intersections north of 
Normanby Avenue will also need to be closed. We will keep you informed.

We apologise for this inconvenience.
