We are improving the south-end of Elizabeth Street to make it a better gateway for the thousands of pedestrians who use it every day.

In 2017 we finalised a concept for the south-end of Elizabeth Street that involves five key components:

  • Southbound traffic removed
  • Expanded pedestrian area
  • Trams remain
  • Western footpath upgraded
  • Northbound traffic remains

Upgrades to the eastern side of the road will more than double the amount of pedestrian space in the street. We will create a better space for people with new bluestone paving, street furniture, lighting, trees and drainage improvements.

The western footpath upgrade was completed in 2017.
