New bridge to improve access to Melbourne Park
Works have begun on the Batman Avenue Bridge – a new pedestrian gateway from Melbourne’s CBD to the Melbourne & Olympic Parks sports and entertainment precinct.
The bridge - part of the $338 million Melbourne Park Stage Two redevelopment – will provide an express route to the precinct from the CBD, shaving travel time from Flinders Street Station to Melbourne Park to less than 10 minutes.
The bridge’s landing point is the heart of Melbourne Park, with direct access to Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena and Garden Square.
Welcoming the development, Melbourne & Olympic Parks Chief Executive Brian Morris stated "the latest aspect of the redevelopment capitalises on the precinct’s close proximity to the city, and provides a convenient new entry for patrons attending sport and entertainment events at Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena and Margaret Court Arena."
Construction of the bridge is expected to be finished in time for the 2017 Australian Open.
Stage Two of the Melbourne Park redevelopment also includes a major refurbishment to Rod Laver Arena and a new media building.
