Buckley Street is now open
28 Sep 2018
The dangerous and congested level crossing at Buckley Street is now gone for good.
From 6:00am on Friday 28 September, you’ll be able to drive along the new Buckley Street road underpass and the adjacent service roads. Russell Street will reopen in late 2018.
The new Buckley Street road underpass runs between Mt Alexander Road and Lorraine Street, with two lanes travelling east towards Mt Alexander Road, and one lane travelling west.
A dedicated lane on Buckley Street connecting the Russell Street service road to Mt Alexander Road will have its own traffic light sequence to make sure cars and buses move safely and easily through the intersection.
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians will now be able to enjoy safer ways of getting to where they need to go.
Cyclists travelling through the northern underpass must dismount.
