August 26, 2012 – Chapel st unearthed
Over this weekend Chapel st was closed from Dandenong Rd all the way up to Commercial/Malvern Rd. They dug up the road and replaced the tram tracks – apparently the last time new tracks were put down was 1974.
Many shops closed for the five days while they worked round the clock replacing tracks and re-concreting. It was quite disconcerting as it really changed the atmosphere on Chapel st itself (obviously), as well as on all the side streets – damn eerie!
