Victoria Parade Water Mains Works

September 21, 2018| Epworth News /

If you plan on heading into Epworth Freemasons, all of our entrances (including the car park) are still open as normal.

From Friday 21 September – Monday 8 October, crews will be working on Victoria Parade as part of the M41 Water Mains Project.

The works will be carried out at the intersection of George Street and Victoria Parade, Fitzroy. There will be reduced lanes in place on Victoria Parade, which means there might be extra traffic, so if you can, make sure to leave a little earlier for your appointment or procedure.

The construction works also mean that no buses will travel eastbound on Victoria Parade from Friday 21 September until last service on Sunday 23 September. Passengers for routes 302, 304, 605, 905, 906, 907 and 908 are advised to use the alternative bus stop at Lonsdale Street/ Swanston Street (QV Shopping Centre). From here the bus will travel onto Exhibition Street, Rathdowne Street, Alexandra Parade and Eastern Freeway.

If you’re running late for a scheduled procedure or have any trouble getting to us, feel free to get in touch on 03 9418 8188 for our Victoria Parade campus and 03 9483 3833 for Clarendon Street.
