Bonwick Street, Fawkner streetscape improvements

Bonwick

Project background

Moreland City Council – as part of its Shopping Strip Renewal Program – is going to be making some streetscape improvements to the Bonwick Street Shopping Strip and wants to hear what you have to say.

The aim is to revitalise the area and improve the pedestrian amenity, walkability and presentation of the shopping strip.

Proposed key improvements might include:

  • Footpath upgrade, including kerb and channels
  • Laneway upgrades on both sides of Bonwick Street
  • New pedestrian crossing
  • Landscaping, including street trees and rain gardens
  • Upgrade of street furniture as required.

The design phase is occurring in 2017-18 followed by construction in 2018-19.

Timelines

Consultation, including an online survey and consultation sessions in Bonwick Street Shopping Strip, took place in June 2018.

Site analysis is underway, including a survey of existing conditions.

Together with community feedback, information gathered will inform the development of a draft concept plan.

Design completion is scheduled for August 2018.
