M8O Trail detour in north-east

From next Monday, the M80 Trail will be closed along a stretch through Bundoora and Greensborough on weekdays and Saturday mornings until mid-March.

The closure is between Plenty Road and the Macorna Street Bridge, which will remain open to riders.

A signed detour will be in place and will take riders a short distance along Plenty Road to Enterprise Drive and then to Linacare Drive, where paths will connect to the M80 Trail to the east, and to the Macorna Street Bridge.

The work is part of the M80 Ring Road completion being delivered by contractors for the North East Link Project.

The works will identify underground services and take ground samples from beneath roads, footpaths and grassed areas as part of planning for future construction.

The following activities are required to carry out these works:
– installing fencing around temporary worksites
– placing traffic and safety signage near worksites and detour route
– cutting, digging and drilling to investigate ground conditions
– restoring worksites to existing conditions on completion of investigations.

Day works will happen from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and 7am to 1pm, Saturday.
