1: Kingfisher-Harrison-Albion path widening
2: Murray Road Bridge Repairs
The attachment shows the area affected around CERES. The detour route has been chosen to avoid sending cyclists on to busy Nicholson Street. Cyclists have been observed taking this route. Follow detour signs. Hopefully the closure won’t be as long as is shown on the map but the works are weather dependent.
The other closure is under Murray Road. The bluestone balustrade on the bridge above needs to be repaired after a car ploughed into it and knocked out a lot of (big, heavy) bluestone flagstones. Scaffolding will be erected under the bridge but the path will remain open except for intermittent short periods (minutes I’m told) when users will be stopped by a flag person if there is danger of objects falling from above. It was very lucky that no one was under the bridge at the time it was hit!
Any questions, contact me.

Dear Moreland BUG members,
More people than ever are riding in Coburg, Brunswick and throughout the inner north of Melbourne. It’s great to see so many cyclists on the road. However, with the days getting shorter it’s time to check your batteries and upgrade your bike lights so you can ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ cycling this winter.
To legally ride at night, your bike needs a bright front and rear light (visible from 200m) and a rear reflector.
Moreland Council and local bike shops are working together to make it easy for you to upgrade your lights.
Throughout the month of May you can get a massive 20% of a range of bike lights from Commuter Cycles, Lygon Cycles, My Mountain, Rays Bicycle Centre Brunswick and Velo Cycles.
Simply print attached voucher and take it to a participating store to claim you discount. Everyone who takes advantage of this offer also goes into the running to win a $300.00 cycling gift voucher. That’s just the thing for a new spray jacket, a complete bike service or maybe a new set of panniers.
Having trouble deciding which lights you need? Check out the Bicycle Victoria Bike Lights review http://www.bv.com.au/bikes-&-riding/91258/
Be safe and be seen on the road this winter.
