Pedestrian bridge to go

03 May 2017

Asset 1, owner of the World Trade Centre (WTC) building, wants to demolish the pedestrian bridge that connects WTC with the Melbourne Quarter site.

The pedestrian walkway over Flinders St, which has been blocked since constructions started on the Melbourne Quarter site, will be removed in the coming months if the City of Melbourne agrees.

According to its planning application, the $870,000 project will remove the pedestrian bridge, make good of the WTC facade and install a new window to the opening of the facade after the bridge has been demolished.

Many North Wharf residents opposed the plan. Todd Henderson, Flinders Wharf resident, said the current pedestrian access across Flinders St from the riverside was poor and a pedestrian bridge was necessary to ensure safe crossing.

“I strongly object to the demolition of this bridge as it is likely to be a long term strategic benefit to pedestrian safety if repurposed effectively,” he said.
