Pall Mall tram track works.

WORK on a section of Bendigo’s tram track along Pall Mall will continue for another week as part of a project the City of Greater Bendigo says will help preserve one of Bendigo’s most important heritage attractions.

City of Greater Bendigo Manager Engineering Brett Martini said a contractor specialising in tram track repairs has been appointed to undertake the work which will involves the removal, cleaning and
replacement of the historic blue stone blocks in the centre of Pall Mall.

“Throughout the works period only one lane will be available in each direction along Pall Mall between Alexandra Fountain and Mundy Street.

“Left-hand turns will be permitted into and out of Williamson Street, but right-hand turns will not be allowed.”

Mr Martini said parking in a section of Sidney Myer Place would be affected and traffic will be limited to 40 kilometres per hour.

“The Williamson Street traffic lights will continue to operate and pedestrians will still be able to cross Pall Mall near the Shamrock Hotel and Bendigo Visitor Information Centre.

“Considerable planning has gone into this project to make sure any inconvenience is kept to a minimum and traffic operates safely during the works.”

Mr Martini said motorists and pedestrians should observe signage around the works area, adding that the city apologises for any inconvenience caused.
