The Brisbane Street Mall Project was a key sub-project identified as a part of the overall Launceston City Heart Project. Brisbane Street Mall was the highest priority area identified by the community. This was due to the site being the most used precinct within the city and a pedestrian thoroughfare within proximity to the public transport interchange and a key central destination with popular retail offering and connectivity to other areas of the CBD.
