City West Water

News update: burst water main in Victoria Street, Carlton

City West Water crews, together with VicRoads and City of Melbourne are continuing the complex job of repairing the water main, dealing with stormwater drains and reinstating the road surface.

We’ll be onsite over the weekend to complete repairs. Eastbound lanes will remain closed to traffic on Victoria Street between Elizabeth and Swanston Streets over the weekend to enable all works to be completed. At this time, VicRoads expect all lanes to be reopened by Monday morning.

We’re working closely with our partners to minimise the impact to customers, and thank our community for your patience and understanding as works continue to safely complete the job.

Water services have not been impacted by the works.

If you’re driving in the area this weekend, VicRoads recommend planning ahead to avoid the area if possible and allow extra time. Please see VicRoads traffic updates for Victoria Street for the latest traffic information.
