Night closure of La Trobe Street continues

Night closures of La Trobe Street at Elizabeth Street are expected to continue for about another week.

Greater Western Water is upgrading the Elizabeth Street sewer and predicts the temporary closure will extend to Thursday 30 November 2023.

A detour will be in place for westbound traffic on La Trobe Street and pedestrians will be diverted around the closure.

Works will take place between 9pm and 5am Monday to Thursday. No works will take place on Friday or the weekend.

Activities include vacuum excavation and non-destructive water digging and require the intersection to be closed to traffic.

To cater for growth in Melbourne’s CBD, Greater Western Water is constructing a new sewer in Elizabeth Street between Lonsdale and Victoria streets.
