Future St Kilda Road transport hub at Anzac Station
Posted: 16 Mar 2021
Victorians will have access to a world-class transport hub at the new Anzac Station precinct when the Metro Tunnel is completed 2025.
This section of St Kilda Road will be heavily patronised by many transport users, with drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, train and tram passengers all needing to use the precinct safely.
A fully accessible tram superstop will be located in the middle of the road, connecting passengers to the underground station below.
To keep cyclists safely separated from road traffic and public transport users, kerbside bike lanes will be built along St Kilda Road in each direction between Dorcas Street and Toorak Road.
Cyclists will be able to ride two abreast, protected from the risk of car dooring by a concrete separator. Parking spaces will be built alongside the concrete separator, followed by two traffic lanes.
The new layout will significantly boost cyclist safety by physically separating bike riders from traffic. Keeping bike lanes by the kerb will make it safer for pedestrians in the centre of St Kilda Road at what will be one of Melbourne’s busiest tram superstops.
Pedestrians will have fewer traffic lanes to cross when heading to and from Anzac Station.
Residents, businesses and other stakeholders in the area will be able to provide feedback on the plans later this year when an updated development plan for the area is released.
Major Road Projects Victoria is preparing a business case that will provide options for safe cycle lanes along the broader St Kilda Road corridor.
