Elizabeth Street is one of Melbourne’s most significant city streets. It is an entrance to Melbourne’s central retail area and a primary city transport route.

The City of Melbourne has released the Elizabeth Street Strategic Opportunities Plan, which provides a long-term vision to transform Elizabeth Street and extend the quality of Melbourne’s retail heart. The proposed changes would see Elizabeth Street reconfigured to improve access for shopping, pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

Stage one of the upgrade to Elizabeth Street South (Flinders Street to Flinders Lane) has been approved and construction is scheduled for early 2020. The Elizabeth Street Strategic Opportunities Plan forms a subsequent phase and focuses on the area between Little Collins Street and La Trobe Street.
