Recently, Yarra City Council voted to seek the community’s feedback on a possible three-month closure of Trenerry Crescent in Clifton Hill.
The possible closure is between the entrance of Dights Falls and Grey Street, underneath the Eastern Freeway overpass. All pedestrian and bike rider access would be maintained, and there are no proposed changes to on-street car parking.
The trial would involve temporary barriers and signage, so we can make changes quickly and adapt them to your feedback.
- No closure of Trenerry Crescent.
- Three-month trial of a full road closure (both northbound and southbound) of Trenerry Crescent, between the entrance to Dights Falls and Grey Street.
- Three-month trial of a half-road closure of Trenerry Crescent, between the entrance to Dights Falls and Grey Street. The southbound lane would be closed to vehicle traffic, while the northbound lane connecting Abbotsford to Clifton Hill would remain open.
