כ"ה אלול ה' אלפים תשס"ט
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 or html) 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.
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.
