Article’s tags: Eruv, Warnings

Users of the Melbourne Eruv are reminded that for technical reasons, the northern boundary of the Eruv is rather complicated, and does NOT extend to Dandenong Road except for one section. The following notes read in conjunction with the map (PDF should assist. The notation in brackets after the street name indicates whether that street runs north – south (N/S) or east-west (E/W). In the following notes regarding the northern boundary on a (N/S) street, either side may be within the Eruv but for an (E/W) street, only the southern side is within the Eruv.

North map of Eruv

The northern boundary of the Eruv starts at St Kilda Junction. It proceeds along St Kilda Road (N/S western side only) to Charnwood Road (E/W). It then turns south into Crimea Street (N/S western side only) to Redan Street (E/W). It then turns from Redan Street into Chapel Street (N/S western side only) then into Alma Road (E/W).

From Alma Road it turns into Alexandra Street (N/S eastern side only) to Murchison Street (E/W). It doglegs across Lansdowne Road into Hughenden Road (E/W) to Orrong Road (N/S eastern side only). From Orrong Road it turns into Dandenong Road (E/W) and continues to Normanby Avenue.

Please note that Normanby Avenue is a few streets west of Normanby Road, which intersects with Dandenong Road near the railway bridge.

Some practical examples:

  • When walking to St Kilda shule, if one needs to stay within the Eruv, then you must walk on the southern side (the Caulfield side) of Alma Road between Alexandra Street and Chapel Street.
  • If someone needs accommodation near the St Kilda shule, the Charnwood Motel, being on the southern side of Charnwood Road is within the Eruv.
  • Lansdowne Road, north of Hughenden Road, i.e up to Dandenong Road, is outside the Eruv.
  • The Emmy Monash Home is within the Eruv, but one must stay on the footpath and not move onto the roadway (of Dandenong Road).
