Metro Tunnel works for the new Parkville Station are moving into the final phase of construction and there are some changes to Grattan Street starting on Tuesday July 11. 

You will still be able to walk around the Peter Mac building, but there are several traffic changes which will affect the patient drop-off zone on Grattan Street.

  • The current turning circle on Grattan Street will be closed. 
  • The short-term drop-off zone on Grattan Street outside Peter Mac will be closed and alternative arrangements are being put in place for patient drop-off/pick-up.

Patient drop-off options

  • The Peter Mac carpark is free for patient drop-off for the first 30 minutes. Take a ticket and drive in, drop the patient on level B3 near the lifts and then exit the carpark. Exit using the same ticket (don’t take it to a pay station).
  • Patients can still be dropped off or picked up outside the Royal Melbourne Hospital – there is a pedestrian access path to cross the road to Peter Mac. Taxis are also available here. 
  • There is a small patient drop-off zone on Elizabeth Street with enough space for two vehicles (turn left from Flemington Road to access this drop off point).
