Southbank Redevelopment

The City of Melbourne is giving our neighbourhood a facelift – 2.5 hectares of beautiful new green public spaces along Southbank Boulevard and its surrounds!

Commencing in July 2018, construction works will take an estimated 18-24 months – and while there’ll be plenty of long-term benefits to the Melbourne Arts Precinct, there’ll also be some short-term impacts to MSO patrons, including temporary road closures, changes/diversions to roads and traffic lights, and changed access to car parks.

To find out more information about how this will impact your visit to Southbank, including performances at Hamer Hall, Melbourne Recital Centre, or the Iwaki Auditorium, please click here.
