Redevelopment work recommences in Rod Laver Arena’s anniversary year

Redevelopment work recommences in Rod Laver Arena’s anniversary year
March 2, 2018

Rod Laver Arena’s redevelopment works have recommenced as the venue celebrates its 30th year welcoming artists, athletes and performers to entertain Melbourne’s audiences.

After pausing construction to successfully host January’s Australian Open, progress is underway on the new eastern pod and grand entrance to the arena, rigging facilities to welcome the biggest shows and key advancements focusing on patron comfort.

Last year, the works delivered exciting eateries, bars and amenities which were revealed in time for the world’s favourite Grand Slam.

Three new specialty outlets, with more service points, have seen queues shrink and easier access to food and drinks during shows.

Performers and athletes have scored significant back-of-house improvements that will allow bigger and better shows to come to the arena.

Enviably revamped rooms and a vast loading dock to manage faster turnaround of events, offer the best possible amenities for promoters, hirers, production crews, artists and athletes.
