I have had discussions with Metro Rail about their method of sending LOTS of flyers but not providing much clarity. The flyers have been very ‘project focused’ and not ‘customer focused’. I don’t really care if the lane closures are for gas work, sewer work or tram work – I want to know what is closed and when.
They have now done this summary
It is MUCH better and gives a summary by each road area. A few things to note:
- Domain Rd will be closed at St Kilda Rd from July 11 for about 5 years – yes that’s right. Five years
- Toorak Rd West eastbound will be closed from 5am Tuesday June 13 for at least 2 weeks.
- St Kilda Rd in the vicinity of Botanica will have lots of closures from June 24 until July 12
On another matter, I know that Botanica residents had a letterbox drop late last week about night works on June 14 and 15. It had an error, it shows the work immediately outside Botanica but calls it 420 St Kilda Rd. I have notified Metro Rail but assume the work is going to occur outside Botanica.
