Stonnington Council had a pretty ugly trial partial closure of the street, but with kudos to Stonnington, the final product is just wonderful. Here are some photos.
Cars are subject to normal rules but as a pedestrian, you feel like you have some rights over cars. Cars who do travel along Greville Street do so at about 20 km/h. A bonus is that skate boarders won't like the paving.
It does change to an almost normal road after Izett Street, but still traffic and there is little, travels slowly.
And treatments even keep going once around the corner into Porter Street at Prahran Station. Just to my left is the old Station Hotel, now a modern and no doubt expensive place to dine with apartments built at the rear. Have a look back at this post of mine from 2012 to see a train coming out of the hotel! I recently read it was a favourite place for police to gather for a drink after work in its older days. There are some good comments in the post too.
The unlamented Table Talk biscuits were as boring as batshit but nice that the sign is still at Prahran Station.
