Good afternoon,

The expected heavy rain will cause flooding along shared trails in Yarra 
and beyond, from tomorrow, Friday until Monday.

Yarra Council will lock access control gates at various locations, 
around midday Friday December 1. It is expected that gates will be 
re-opened on Monday 4 December, if conditions allow.

Council's staff and contractors will make every effort to clear all 
flood damage by Tuesday 5 December. Path users should expect mud, debris 
and other hazards along the paths once flooding has subsided, until cleared.

Walkers, runners and people riding bikes should avoid using shared paths 
and not enter flooded paths, or travel beyond access control (flood) 
gates--located at Dights Falls, Hall Reserve, Bundara Street Park.

Flooding will occur at the following locations:

  * Main Yarra Trail:
      o Burnley Harbour, Mary Street, Burnley
      o Walmer/Burnley Street to Victoria Street, Abbotsford
      o Clarke Street, Abbotsford
      o Dights Falls to Johnston Street, Abbotsford
  * Merri Creek Trail
      o High Street to Heidelberg Road, Clifton Hill & Northcote
      o St Georges Road to Sumner Park, North FItzroy and Brunswick East

Flooding is also very likely to occur: along north and south banks of 
Yarra River at South Yarra, Southbank, Docklands, Jolimont and City; 
along Moonee Ponds Creek from Parkville to Docklands; and Darebin Creek 
Trail from Preston to Alphington.

More generally, SES advises that all community members should:

    Never walk, ride or drive through floodwater, Never allow children
    to play in floodwater, Stay away from waterways and stormwater
    drains during and after heavy rain, Keep well clear of fallen power
    lines, Be aware that heavy rainfall increases the potential for
    landslides and debris across roads.

    Current Emergency Information is available at
    http://emergency.vic.gov.au For emergency assistance contact the SES
    on 132 500.

Please pass this information to all those who you think may be affected.


Kind regards,
