Works are starting on a new pedestrian crossing towards the bottom of York Rd.
The pedestrian operated signals will be located between Karen Crt and Hawkins Rd, which will replace the current flagged crossing used by Mt Evelyn Christian School students, residents, and employees and volunteers from Yarra View Nursery.
The works will also include “replacement and upgrade of the bus shelter on the northern side near the nursery, and relocating it to ensure pedestrians crossing York Road will have more direct and safer access to bus services… the northern side footpath and road surface, as well as the drain on the south side of York Road” (VicRoads website)
“During construction there will be single lane closures between 9.30am and 3pm. We encourage road users to plan ahead and allow extra travel time.
Works are expected to be complete in mid 2017. ” (VicRoads website)
