Traffic Alert – Toorak Road closure

28 December 2018

Yarra Trams will be conducting essential works from 10pm Wednesday 2 January, with closures affecting Toorak Road, the Burwood Highway and Warrigal Road.

A full closure will be set up from Camberwell Road, Camberwell to Scott Grove, Burwood until Saturday 12 January.

Warrigal Road will re-open at the Toorak Road intersection by 5am Sunday 6 January.

During the works, signed detours will be set up via Glen Iris Road, High Street, Warrigal Road and Riversdale Road.

Tram services on route 75 will be replaced by buses. Buses on routes 766 and 903 will be diverted around the closure.

VicRoads will monitor conditions and our signal engineers will minimise delays by adjusting traffic lights on surrounding roads.

These important works have been scheduled at a time when the road network is at its most quiet. We understand that there will be a significant impact to traffic, so we suggest drivers avoid the area where possible, plan ahead and allow extra time.

If you see any hazards on our roads, please report them to the VicRoads Traffic Management Centre on 13 11 70, open 24/7. In an emergency, call Triple Zero.
