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.
