New footbridge to station

03 Feb 2010

Docklanders will soon have more access to Southern Cross Station via a new footbridge connected to the soon-to-be-completed 717 Bourke St building.

Project manager, Reece Barker, said the pedestrian bridge would be open to the public in early July.

“The footbridge will provide public access to the south side of Bourke St from the current bridge. This will allow pedestrians to access the 717 building and associated public landscaped areas and to continue their journey further west on the south side of Bourke St by using the stairs from the podium level.

There will also be lifts available for public use to reach ground level,” Mr Barker said.

Though the bridge may be completed before July, the 717 Bourke St building itself will still be in construction until at least the end of June.

When completed, the 717 Bourke St building will be home to energy firm BP Australia, insurance firms AIG and Marsh Australia and the Financial Ombudsman Service.
