Heritage push for St Kilda Road and Fawkner Park as part of Metro Rail Project

One of Melbourne’s busiest boulevards and a popular inner city park could end up being heritage listed as part of a state government tactic to stop people thwarting the Metro Rail Project. In a pre-emptive move, the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority has applied for St Kilda Road and Fawkner Park to be listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, partly so that objectors can’t use the planning process to delay the $10.9 billion project at a later stage.
