As construction of the new Parkville Station continues, there will be some changes to how you drive, cycle and walk around the precinct.
Short-term traffic changes
Long-term road and lane closures
There are long-term road and lane closures in place during construction of the new Parkville Station.
Grattan Street is closed to vehicles between Elizabeth Street/Royal Parade and Bouverie Street.
From 11 July until the end of 2023, the Grattan Street eastbound lane, between Flemington Road and Elizabeth Street/Royal Parade, will temporarily reopen to maintain hospital drop-off/pick-up and access for emergency services, replacing the U-turn manoeuvre.
Vehicles will be able to travel eastbound on Grattan Street from Flemington Road and turn left onto Royal Parade. There will be no right-hand turn onto Elizabeth Street from Grattan Street.
Access to hospitals, hospital car park, and ambulances will be maintained at all times.
Barry Street, between Pelham and Grattan streets, is also closed to vehicles.
Elizabeth Street/Royal Parade northbound service lane is currently closed to vehicles from Haymarket Roundabout to north of the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
Vehicles travelling northbound from Haymarket Roundabout are directed to the Elizabeth Street/Royal Parade northbound centre lane. Minor lane closures are in place on Haymarket Roundabout and Peel Street to assist with traffic flow for northbound traffic.
