Bridge Mall Development

The Bridge Mall redevelopment is a key project of the Bakery Hill Urban Renewal Plan.

The Bakery Hill Urban Renewal Plan is the first step in revitalising the Ballarat CBD and aims to restore the Bridge Mall to a vibrant destination for shoppers, diners, residents and visitors.

Fully-funded by the City of Ballarat, the $18.6 million Bridge Mall redevelopment features an extension of the Sturt Street gardens and a landscaped entry into the Bridge Mall, new street furniture, smart street lighting, outdoor dining opportunities, connections to the Yarrowee River and Canadian Creek trails, a dynamic new play space, and one-way low-speed vehicle access from Sturt Street to Peel Street with limited parking.

The City of Ballarat has awarded contracts for the main civil works and landscaping. Works are expected to commence mid-2023 with construction expected to take approximately 12 months.
