More anti-terror bollards have been installed in Melbourne's CBD: this time at Southern Cross Station.

Commuters arrived to the sight of at least 30 concrete bollards on Friday morning, while Bollards also shot up along Southbank Boulevard, near Queensbridge Street.

It's in response to the Bourke Street rampage which claimed six lives and injured 30 people back in January, the Brighton siege, and the vehicle terror attacks which have rocked the world ‒ most recently, London.

"There's no time to be wasted here. The threat of terror  the threat of hostile vehicle attacks, the threats to public safety ‒ are all too real," said Premier Daniel Andrews when announcing the initiative earlier this month.

Similar concrete blocks were installed at Federation Square weeks ago.

The barricades, which the Premier himself has acknowledged are unsightly, are only temporary. Permanent bollards will be installed at a later date.
