Olinda - Monbulk Road, Monbulk tree management

22 September 2022

We’re undertaking tree management works on Olinda-Monbulk Road in Monbulk. 

What we’re doing

We’re keeping Olinda-Monbulk Road safe by removing three large trees on the side of the road which, if untreated, could present a hazard to road users.

When to expect us 

Works are expected to take place between 26 and 29 September, if the weather permits.

Crews will be working between 7am and 5pm. 

How will these works impact you? 

To safely undertake this tree removal, we need to close the road and use a large tower to reach the tree. 

During works:

  • Olinda-Monbulk Road will be closed between 186 Olinda-Monbulk Road and 216 Olinda-Monbulk Road in Monbulk. 
  • A signed detour will be in place via Monbulk Road, Sherbrooke Road and Mount Dandenong Tourist Road. 
  • The 696 bus service will continue to operate during works with a shuttle bus running via Monbulk Road and Invermay Road.
  • The Hunter Street/Olinda Monbulk Road bus stop will not be serviced between 7am and 5pm whilst crews are on site.
  • Reduced speed limits in place to keep our crews safe.
  • Some noise as we work to remove the tree.

We will maintain access to properties and businesses at all times.

Plan ahead and allow extra travel time. To ensure the safety of all workers and the community, all construction and maintenance work undertaken will operate under a COVIDSafe Plan.
