The MCG is well serviced by pedestrian bridges that provide easy access to the stadium from a number of directions.
The William Barak Bridge, opened in 2006 in time for the Commonwealth Games, is a 525-metre bridge that provides walking access from Flinders Street station to the MCG. It rises from Birrarung Marr (near Federation Square) over Batman Avenue, the Jolimont Railway corridor and Brunton Avenue before descending into Yarra Park.
The bridge links Melbourne’s fabulous sports and entertainment venues with the heart of the city.
The Rod Laver Arena footbridge links the MCG and Rod Laver Arena, travelling between the two stadiums from the MCG’s Gate 1 concourse over the railway corridor to the foot of Rod Laver Arena
The Hisense Arena footbridge runs parallel to the Rod Laver Arena footbridge, extending from the MCG’s Gate 6 concourse over the railway corridor and descending into the Olympic Park precinct on Swan Street.Back to top
