Court Services Victoria and the Supreme Court of Victoria will shortly upgrade the gates between Lonsdale and Little Bourke Streets.
The work begins on Monday 13 December and is expected to finish in May 2022.
The existing gates will be replaced with new gates that meet vehicle mitigation and security requirements. The laneway entrances will also be modified, which will see the restoration and relocation of some of the original gate’s bluestone columns.
The works will improve vehicle access, and ensure a smoother surface for wheelchairs. While the pavers are lifted there will also be some work undertaken to improve drainage and other services. Temporary wheelchair access and emergency exit routes will be through the laneway next to the Old High Court, which is accessible via Little Bourke Street.
Signs will be placed throughout the Court buildings to assist with wayfinding. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation while the Court undertakes these works.
