As COVID-19 restrictions ease and Melbourne begins to reactivate and recover, we want to make it as easy as possible to welcome people safely back to our streets.

From Little Lonsdale to Flinders Lane, we’re making changes that will create more for people to walk, shop and dine – while still maintaining physical distance.
