The construction of the Metro Tunnel station in Parkville may cause delays around Peter Mac due to traffic and pedestrian diversions
Works are increasing in Grattan Street West which may affect vehicle and pedestrian traffic around Peter Mac.
From early September 2019 through until early 2020, ongoing service relocation works will mean greater disruption for patients and staff.
Peter Mac patients and staff should plan ahead and allow extra travel time when coming to and from Peter Mac, with some diversions in place for pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
Further information will be provided as works commence over the coming weeks.
