Bridge Road - Closures

July 24, 2018| Epworth News /

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.

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.

Lennox Street, Richmond

Team Recipes - Tonjiru Miso Soup

Tonjiru is filling and so delicious. It is considered to be a winter dish served at home, festivals and parties in Japan, but I have it all year round. I never met a person who doesn’t like this fabulous soup!

Endometrios(US) not Endometrios(YOU)

The ever-dreaded menstrual cycle, long known as the beacon of a transition period, literally, between girlhood to womanhood. It’s a customary part of the maturing process of our bodies where us females are taught from a young age that we should expect two things during so: bleeding and discomfort.
