Melb drivers to avoid busy road for hours

Victorian drivers will need to avoid a stretch of a busy road in the state's capital for 12 hours to allow workers to complete "essential crane works".

A stretch of a busy Melbourne CBD road will be shut to motorists for 12 hours to allow workers to complete "essential crane works".

Drivers won't be able to travel northbound on Kings Street, between Flinders Lane and Collins Street, between 6am and 6pm on Sunday.

"The closure is necessary to complete essential crane works," VicRoads warns.

Motorists are being urged to plan ahead, allow extra time to get around the city and use Spencer Street or William Street instead to avoid the closure.
