    Station Pier Redevelopment

    In January, the Victorian Ports Corporation Melbourne (VPCM) submitted a proposal to the Department of Treasury and Finance for funding the redevelopment of Station Pier.

    The BCNA submitted a list of issues that required review to improve the functioning of Station Pier and the precinct. They included traffic flow (adequacy of the queuing lane and the Princes Street roundabout), easy movement of ship passengers from ship to shore, the need for a taxi/bus area for cruise ship visitors, public realm improvements (the whole area is very weather exposed), lack of shops and amenities, parking, and the need to work closely with Melbourne Water so that the storm water drain can be realigned as part of any capital works program.

    If VPCM’s budget bid is successful, details will be announced in the Victorian Government’s Budget on 27th May 2019.
