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.

To find out about works in the CBD North and Parkville come along to one of the following information sessions:

CBD NORTH
When: Tuesday 6 December – 4.30pm-7.30pm

Where: Hotel Ibis Melbourne – Swanston Room, 15-21 Therry Street, Melbourne VIC 3000

PARKVILLE
When: Monday 12 December – 2.00pm-6.00pm

Where: Seminar room 2, Peter Doherty Institute, corner Grattan and Elizabeth streets
