Old Healesville Road closed at Melba Hwy.

  1. Old Healesville Road closed at Melba Hwy..

    Not quite a harzard, but could change your ride plans at short notice.

    I noted on 4th October 2009 that the Old Healesville Road was closed at Melba Hwy, with large amounts of digging and earth works going on. I assumed that it was for the water pipeline, but actually they are building a truck bypass for Yarra Glen. See http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home...jects/EasternSuburbs/YarraGlenTruckBypass.htm There is a bypass road map at that link.

    The intersection will be closed until mid-December. After that, watch out more carefully for trucks.
  2. Thanx for the heads up.
  3. Just confirming that the road is definately closed and the detour road is about 3kms long hard packed with some gravel which takes you back to the main Yara Glen Healesville road.
