The Day All Melbourne Commuters Have Waited For Is Here!
It’s the day Melbourne motorists have waited for, for years and years.
From today, Punt Road is a permanent clearway.
The 24-hour clearway will operate 7 days a week, increasing from weekdays 6:30-9:30a and 3:30-6:30om.
Clearways now apply along both sides of Punt Road, from the Yarra River to St Kilda Junction.
Last month, Roads Minister Luke Donnelley said the permanent clearway would be strictly enforced.
"People's cars will be towed away. We want to make it very clear very early there will be fines: a $155 fine and $334 costs to retrieve your vehicle,"he said.
Similar permanent clearways will also be considered on the major roads in South Yarra and Prahran that feed into Punt Road – Alexandra Avenue, Toorak Road, Commercial Road and High Street.
