The Buckley Street breakthrough
After 30 days of round-the-clock works and with over 20,000 tonnes of soil excavated, we have finally broken through to the other side of the new Buckley Street underpass.
During the works from 9 August through to 30 September, there will be changes to the way you access shops on Buckley Street near the level crossing.
From August through to September we will build the new Buckley Street road underpass, service roads and continue works to upgrade pedestrian underpasses at Essendon Station.
