SAVE CAMPBELL ARCADE

Take Action

The Campbell Arcade is a unique part of Melbourne’s heritage and culture, which could soon be destroyed without a second thought.

Current Metro Tunnel Plans show the arcade’s eastern wall could soon be demolished. But Labor’s Planning Minister Richard Wynne hasn’t even assessed the heritage impact this could have.

Campbell Arcade is a rare example of Art deco design, with a distinct ‘50s colour scheme. It’s so important, it’s specifically mentioned in the heritage listing of Flinders Street Station.

Since the ‘90s, it’s become a zany arts space that fuels our culture. The walls are lined with creative work. You can pick up the latest zine from the Sticky Institute or grab some independent Aussie fashion from The Cat’s Meow.

Clearly we need an underpass from Town Hall to Flinders Street Station. But Labor’s failure to properly consider and plan for our heritage is seriously concerning.

Minister Wynne, please consider the impact of the planned underpass from Town Hall Station to Flinders Street Station on the heritage of Campbell Arcade. This is an important part of our heritage.
