Collins St continues its extension

02 Oct 2009

Collins St continues its extension Image

Melbourne’s most prestigious street, Collins St, last month continued its journey towards its eventual meeting with Melbourne’s best-known street, Bourke St, in Docklands.

On September 20, Collins St opened another couple of blocks westwards towards its final destiny and is now open to traffic as far as Merchant St.

The opening of the street also coincided with a change in Docklands tram routes with the major change being that the number 48 now comes all the way down Collins St into Docklands.

The 48 from North Balwyn now terminates in Collins St at Merchant St.  It previously ran to Waterfront City.  It now turns right into Spring St from Wellington Pde and then left into Collins St.

The other change is to route 70 which now continues beyond Bourke St and now terminates in Waterfront City.  Yarra Trams says this is to compensate for the number 48 which no longer goes to Waterfront City.

VicUrban CEO Pru Sanderson said:  The extension of one of Melbourne’s signature streets and delivery of such blue chip headquarters firmly consolidates Docklands’ integration with the wider CBD.”

“The enhanced transport links and soon to open ANZ and Myer offices draw one of Melbourne’s premier corporate addresses right into the heart of Docklands and are helping us to create a vibrant and diverse place for locals and all of Melburnians to enjoy.”
