Overview

View & Hide Overview content

Major Projects Victoria is delivering a bridge for pedestrians and cyclists as part of Stage 2 of the Melbourne Park Redevelopment.

The bridge will provide the public with direct access from Lower Terrace, Birrarung Marr over Batman Avenue and into Melbourne Park.

Once completed, the bridge will significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to walk from Flinders Street Station and Federation Square into Melbourne Park, and will provide a more enjoyable entry experience for people attending the Australian Open.

Designed by John Wardle Architects, the bridge will complement the landscape and provide a new vantage point over Speakers’ Corner.

Scheduled for completion in time for the 2017 Australian Open, the bridge will improve access and enhance the experience for people attending any event at Melbourne Park.
