Nicholson Street, Fitzroy maintenance works

27 May 2021

The Victorian Government is investing up to $300,000 to resurface Nicholson Street (southbound) between Johnston Street and Gertrude Street in Fitzroy.

This important maintenance work will ensure Nicholson Street remains safe and strong for the hundreds of drivers who rely on it every day. 

When to expect us 

Thursday 3 June and Sunday 6 June 

  • Daytime: Nicholson Street open as normal 
  • Night-time from 8pm to 5am: Nicholson Street closed southbound between Johnston Street and Gertrude Street
  • Parking will be restricted during works 
  • Drivers are asked to follow the detours that will be in place


During works at night, the detour route will be via Johnston Street, Rathdowne Street, Victoria Parade and Brunswick Street. 

How will these works impact you? 

During these maintenance works, there’ll be: 

  • Detours in place 
  • Safe speeds in place near the work zone
  • Some noise, vibration and dust from the works 

Works are subject to weather conditions. 

Please plan ahead, allow extra time, and look out for traffic management signage. 

Thank you for your patience while we complete these important works.
