Acland Street Renewal
St Kilda’s vibrant Acland Street precinct recently received a fabulous streetscape upgrade
Port Phillip Council approved plans to transform Acland Street with a lively public plaza and a ‘promenade’ atmosphere to encourage pedestrians to stroll along the iconic shopping, dining and entertainment destination. The upgrade also allows for the seamless integration of Public Transport Victoria’s (PTV) upgraded level-access Acland Street tram terminus.
G.James supplied the glass for 14 custom tram shelters, each constructed of 16 overhead glazed panels – a total of 224 shaped panels, 1800mm x 700mm. The glass type used was 13.52mm ToughLam Graphic Custom Laminate.
The newly established pedestrian plaza provides 30% more open public space that is more accessible for those with accessibility requirements, meaning more people can visit and enjoy the iconic shopping street than ever before.
