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:

When: Tuesday 6 December – 4.30pm-7.30pm

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

When: Monday 12 December – 2.00pm-6.00pm

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

Here's what we achieved together in 2021

As the year comes to an end I want to reflect on some of the great wins that we’ve achieved together. 


Free the Park Hotel prisoners

The treatment of the asylum seekers being held inside the Park Hotel is unfathomably cruel.After 8 years in detention, these people are now facing yet another struggle - against COVID-19.I asked the Victorian Government to advocate to release these people from this hotel prison immediately.


COLOUR IT: What are you most looking forward to when Melbourne re-opens?

We have all worked so hard and sacrificed so much to keep our community safe during this pandemic. Now it's time to re-open and revitalise our incredible city! Young people of Melbourne - what are you most looking forward to doing? 


MEDIA RELEASE: Greens fear Government is setting new 'Arden' precinct up to fail

The Victorian Government today released the final Arden Structure Plan, for a new precinct in inner city Melbourne that the State Government says will be home to 15,000 residents and 34,000 employees by 2050.
