Due to works at the Bendigo Hospital Project there are currently changes to traffic flow, with the temporary closure of Mercy Street.
The reopening of traffic to Mercy Street, at the Barnard Street intersection, is now scheduled for early May. This is a later date than anticipated, due to unforeseen roadworks.
Traffic will continue to use the alternative route to services previously accessed via Mercy Street as indicated on the public access map provided. (see link below)
This detour route via Arnold Street includes a street entry and footpath for pedestrians, as well as a vehicle entry point for all traffic (including commercial deliveries) to access the Good Loaf café, current hospital kitchen, Monash School of Rural Health and the John Lindell Rehabilitation, Marjorie Phillips and hospice units. Delivery parking bays are available to allow for van and truck dispatches. To ensure the safety of pedestrians and road users, the speed limit is set to 5km/h along the alternative Mercy St route.
The closure of Mercy Street, which has been in place since February 15 this year, is allowing for the upgrade of essential service infrastructure and road surfaces. We do apologise for any inconvenience this road closure may cause, however these are important works – as once the full project is completed, Mercy Street will serve as the main access route to the new hospital’s public entrance.
We thank the public, Bendigo Health and its allied health partners for the cooperation shown during this construction phase.
