There will be traffic delays in the city for the next month as part of a security upgrade that will change the face of Melbourne’s most iconic landmark.
Works to replace concrete blocks with more than 50 permanent bollards outside the Flinders Street station will begin on Monday.
The project will see one lane closed on St Kilda Road, meaning motorists turning left onto Flinders Street will be forced to share a lane with those turning right.
Major traffic delays are expected and drivers are being urged to allow extra time when travelling through the area.
It comes following the announcement of a $50 million security upgrade of the CBD in response to the Bourke Street attack.
Melbourne City Council has committed to ceasing works for the busy holiday period between December 15 and January 5.
