If the plans recently discussed, to close Elizabeth St to motor traffic
south of Bourke St (as Swanston St is already) go ahead, then traffic
exiting the little streets (Flinders Lane or Little Collins St) cannot turn
left at Elizabeth St, nor at Swanston St. For Little Bourke St (westbound
one-way traffic) and Little Lonsdale St (eastbound one-way traffic) at
Elizabeth St it would be possible.
