Pedestrian and vehicle access will be maintained for local businesses and residents. The footpath will remain open past Degraves Street but the full path will not re-open until late 2020.
“This is a significant closure but we need to do it – it’s the only way to build this vital underground connection between Flinders Street and the Metro Tunnel station,” Ms Allan said.
“We know how disruptive this major construction will be so we’re doing everything we can to minimise disruptions and impacts on local residents, businesses and people visiting the city.”
Metro Tunnel works have already caused disruptions on Flinders Street, with one of three westbound lanes shut to traffic at the end of last year.
