This will include the removal of 98 large trees between Narbethong and Healesville which have been identified by an arborist assessment as being unstable due to age and conditions. 

While we remove the identified trees safely, we’ll be closing the road due to its narrow nature and to keep road users and our crews safe. 

The Black Spur will be closed intermittently during March, April and May. We’ve developed a staged approach which will keep the Black Spur open during the morning and afternoon peaks. The road will close from 9.30am to 3.30pm on Monday to Thursday. The road will open all day Friday to Sunday. These planned dates may change due to unforeseen events such as weather.

We may also need to undertake further stages of work. We’ll monitor the progress of these works and advise the community.
