City Square Plus

Closure of City Square to traffic from 2023 plus a series of small complementary schemes to be developed and implemented as a result of the closure of City Square in a combined package called City Square Plus.

A key component of this scheme is the closure of City Square to general traffic from January 2023 to allow the creation of a world class gateway for the city.  A series of smaller complementary schemes which are intended to support the closure of City Square, have been grouped with City Square into a single scheme known as City Square+, which includes East Parade bus gate, business district traffic management, Westgate merge signals at A58(M), Great Wilson St widening, Holbeck traffic management (Globe Road signalisation), a signage strategy and a trial closure (or access restrictions) for City Square and associated traffic management to assist buses, pedestrians and cyclists.
