Access during Southbank Boulevard and Dodds Street project
Melbourne City Council commenced construction in July 2018 on the Transforming Southbank Boulevard and Dodds Street project, with works expected to take an estimated 18 months.
This will have no effect on The Australian Ballet Centre Car Park's opening hours, which will remain the same.
Southbank Blvd will be closed to cars between St Kilda Rd and Sturt St (it remains open for trams and pedestrians). During this time, you can access The Australian Ballet Centre Car Park via a temporary detour along Grant St or continue to use Sturt St, Kavanagh St or City Rd.
Easier parking for you
Care Park is introducing changes to the entry and exit procedures at Primrose Potter Australian Ballet Centre car park, with the car park equipment being upgraded to a one ticket system.
From Monday 31 July 2017, the pay stations will no longer issue exit passes. Instead, you will need to use your entry pass to exit the car park following payment at a pay station.
The new process for entry and exit will be as follows:
- Take a ticket upon arrival at the car park
- Before exiting, scan your entry ticket at a pay station.
- If you require a receipt, press the receipt button before making payment
- Pay the applicable parking fee using notes, coins or credit card
- Retain your entry ticket to use at the exit gate
Contact the Care Park team for more information about the new system at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 03 9682 1733
