Darebin Creek Trail Temporary Closure between Mckimmies Road and Childs Road
Last Updated on October 15, 2015
We have received notification from the City of Whittlesea that work is about to commence on upgrading the existing granitic sand part of the Darebin Creek Trail between Mckimmies Road and Sycamore Reserve (approximately one kilometre in length) to be a 2.5 metre wide concrete shared path.
This will result in the temporary closure of the Darebin Creek Trail between Mckimmies Road and Childs Road from mid-October to mid-November 2015.
Detour signs have been set up to assist cyclists in getting around the closure. The image below shows two possible detour routes.
This is an exciting development and is part of an overall plan that the Whittlesea BUG has been advocating for to eventually link the South Morang Rail Extension Bike Path with the Metropolitan Ring Road Bike Path via a fully paved Darebin Creek Trail.
We commend the City of Whittlesea for their commitment to this project.
