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.

Our thoughts are with anyone that has been evacuated or impacted in our community. We hope you're back home and your business is able to reopen very soon.
With the rates of mental illness on the rise in Australia, particularly in young people, we decided to open up the can of worms and speak to clinical psychologist, Hannah Hawkes, about the elephant in the room.
“A full MRI licence at Epworth Geelong means that patients will no longer compromise on health outcomes based on affordability.”
A record number of graduate nurses and midwives are set to join the Epworth team in February and March this year, for an exciting opportunity to consolidate their theoretical and clinical skills.
Tummy aches can be extremely common in young children. Some are mild and non threatening, others need to be taken more seriously. Here we will run through a few different concerns and how best to handle the pain for your little one.
When your child injures themselves and bleeding is involved it can be scary for everyone. Knowing exactly what to do and when you should be seeking medical attention, can help to take some of the stress out of the situation.
