Work will be undertaken at more than 250 locations across the CBD to prepare Melbourne for the Metro Tunnel.
From early next year, Franklin Street will close between Swanston and Victoria streets, and A’Beckett Street will close between Swanston and Stewart streets. They will remain closed for up to five years to enable construction of the new CBD North station, which will connect to Melbourne Central.
To improve traffic flow and provide an alternative to these roads, parking near intersections on La Trobe Street between Exhibition and King streets will be removed. A ‘no stopping’ zone will also be introduced eastbound on Victoria Street between Leicester and Nicholson streets in the morning peak.
