About 100 workers, from businesses, including the ABC studios and the Brisbane Eye tourist attraction, were evacuated after emergency services received reports of a suspected gas leak just before 8am on Wednesday.

Grey Street was closed between Glenelg and Melbourne streets, affecting pedestrians and motorists until they were reopened about an hour later.
