Works notice – Parker Street, Preston - changes to parking
05 Feb 2021
The Victorian Government is removing four dangerous and congested level crossings at Oakover Road, Bell Street, Cramer Street and Murray Road, and building new Bell and Preston stations.
The level crossings will be removed by raising the rail line over the roads, improving safety and accessibility and delivering new community open spaces.
Parker Street – parking changes
From Tuesday 16 February to mid March 2021 the northern side of Parker Street and the eastern side of Taunton Avenue will be made a No Parking Zone.
This is to allow trucks enough room to turn from Spring Street into Parker Street and enter the rail corridor at Taunton Avenue to complete trenching work for service installation.
Work will be undertaken during standard project work hours between 7am and 6pm weekdays and 7am and 3pm Saturdays.
See map below for details. Access to properties will be maintained.
What to expect
- Increased truck and vehicle movements in and out of the work site
- Some noise from work crews and increased activity in the area
- Operation of construction vehicles and equipment
For your safety, follow the signage and instructions from traffic management.
