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.
