CBD flood clean up: Busy intersection remains closed for a second day

3AW News

One of Melbourne’s busiest intersections is expected to be closed to traffic until Monday morning.

Victoria Street remains closed eastbound between Elizabeth Street and Swanston Street as the clean up from a burst water main continues.

The water main burst at around 9.20am on Thursday, causing massive floods and damage to nearby buildings.

“There’s just a huge amount of water that basically engulfed the entire of Victoria Street,” Chris Miller from VicRoads told 3AW Mornings.

“Crews have been working since that water has disappeared, but it’s a much bigger job than we anticipated, hence the length of that closure.”

Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time, and should use Queensberry Street to avoid the closure.
