Update: Gardiners Creek Trail
The reconstruction works of the Trail at the Masters site have been completed and the trail is now open. The temporary safety fencing will be replaced with a permanent installation in the coming weeks.
Temporary closure and detour
Melbourne Water will soon begin works to widen Gardiners Creek, between Burke Road and Tooronga Road. The project will increase the level of flood protection for local properties and the community in high rainfall events.
The works to widen the creek are planned to start in mid July and are expected to take 4 to 6 months to complete.
The Gardiners Creek path between Great Valley Rd and Toroonga Rd needs to be closed for the duration of the creek widening works. A detour route along Great Valley Rd, Will St, Carroll Crescent and Tooronga Rd will be in place during this time.
Additional illuminated signs will be placed on the path two weeks in advance of the works starting, to inform users of the exact detour start date. The signs will be in place again when the project is close to completion.
