New Performing Arts Venue Project Update

New Performing Arts Venue Project Update

November 19, 2020 – Community, Featured

Throughout November 2020, construction work continues to ramp up on the New Performing Arts Venue located at the corner of Russell and Grey Streets. Below is a summary of how these changes may impact access near the site while works continue on construction of the new theatre until late 2022.


  • Changed Access: Parking at BCEC – No right turn into the BCEC car park from Grey St (southbound). Access now via Merivale St


  • QPAC: The footpath and southbound lane of Grey St is closed between QPAC pedestrian tunnel and Russel St

  • The footpath along QPAC on Russell St is also closed to pedestrians

  • Temporary fencing has been installed in front of The Charming Squire


  • Grey Street: Street cycle lanes on Grey temporarily removed. Cyclists can either share the traffic lane with vehicles with a reduced traffic speed of 20 km/h in place or legally ride on the footpath.
