dsc_0295Over September and October workers have gone about pedestrianizing the Barkly Street end of Acland Street. As we are going to print construction is almost complete.

Over the last three years there has been fierce debate on the pages of St Kilda News weather this upgrade was a good idea or not. Please brows our website for some of the views expressed: www.stkildanews.com

dsc_0296The final verdict will ultimately become apparent over this coming summer as we learn to love or maybe loath the new Acland Street.

On Saturday 12 November 10 am to 9 pm, the new plaza will be the stage of the inaugural Acland Street Spring Fling, an all day celebration of the many sides of Acland Street. It will featuring live music, children’s activities and family fun, roving entertainment, dance, readings and an open air ball.
