Bridge Road - Closures
Update: 5pm 25/07/2018
Bridge Road has now reopened! Thanks to our team and anyone visiting us at Richmond for your patience while making your way to us through the road closures. For further updates please refer to VicTraffic.
Update: 11.30am 25/07/2018
The top half of the crane appears to have been dismantled. Victoria Police say the process is expected to take several hours. Roads continue to be closed.
With high winds overnight, a crane near our Richmond campus on Lennox Street has caused Bridge Road to be temporarily closed between Church Street and Punt Road.
If you plan on heading into our Richmond campus, our Bridge Road entrance (including the car park) is still open as normal from the Punt Road end. Our emergency department on Erin Street also continues to be accessible. The Bridge Road closure is effective from the pedestrian crossing at the front of the hospital going the other way (toward Church Street).
If you're running late for a scheduled procedure or need help with something else, please call us on 03 9426 6666.
We've taken all of our morning deliveries as normal and we expect the biggest disruptions will be to people travelling on foot and via tram, along with general traffic delays over the next couple of days.
We’ll continue to keep you updated here, but for live updates in the meantime please visit VicTaffic here.
Please stay safe and be patient in any traffic, especially our team on the roads visiting patients.
As many as 300 residents evacuated after a crane arm was blown backwards in strong winds overnight. About a dozen residents spent night at the Richmond Town Hall most went to hotels or stayed with friends & family.
