It’s business as usual at Berwick Veterinary Hospital

by | Nov 19, 2020

As work on the Clyde Road level crossing continues, we would like to let you know about a recommended alternative route to take when coming from Narre Warren or the Berwick township.

If you’re travelling from Narre Warren, instead of turning onto Clyde Road directly from the Princes Hwy where the traffic congestion is worst, turn right onto Coniston Avenue (before reaching the main set of Berwick traffic lights), then left onto the Princes Hwy Service Road. Drive along the Princes Hwy Service Road until you hit Millwood Avenue. From Millwood Avenue turn left onto Mansfield Street, then right onto Evan Street and finally left onto Jane Street where you can enter from our back car park. See the map above.

If travelling from Berwick, it is easiest to take the Princes Hwy Service Road on your left, immediately after going through the main set of traffic lights in Berwick (down past the car dealerships). Turn left onto Millwood Avenue, and continue as per directions above.

Cars are no longer able to make U-turns or right-hand turns into the clinic from the Clyde Road traffic lights out the front of the clinic. Instead, you will need to head down to Enterprise Avenue and make a U-turn there. Given the heavy congestion, we recommend you avoid this route, and utilise the back roads as described above.

Left-hand turns out of Jane Street onto Clyde Road are also currently not possible, so we have made our exit point to the car park two-way to enable you to more easily access the back roads when entering or leaving the hospital.

If you need any assistance in planning the easiest route to our hospital, please don’t hesitate to give one of our team a buzz on (03) 9707 2655 prior to your visit.

We’ve got some exciting news in the works for 2021 to ensure our patients can easily access veterinary care throughout this period – keep an eye out for upcoming announcements!
