In a bid to get revellers into South Bank, tolls on the Go Between Bridge will be waived on New Year’s Eve.

Acting lord mayor Cr Adrian Schrinner also announced that public transport will be free from 9pm on New Year’s Eve (Wednesday night) until early New Year’s Day (Thursday morning).

“We want to encourage people to come into South Bank and make the most of this great celebration, so Council is waiving the tolls on the Go Between Bridge from 6pm Wednesday until 2am on Thursday,” Cr Schrinner said.

“Public transport will also be a convenient option to travel to South Bank. All public transport will be free of charge from 9pm on New Year’s Eve until 5:30am on New Year’s morning.”
