Holmes-Nicholson-Moreland Shopping Strip, Brunswick - Streetscape improvements
Council is undertaking streetscape improvements to the Holmes-Nicholson-Moreland Shopping Strip, as part of Council’s Shopping Strip Renewal Program.
The aim is to revitalise the area and improve the pedestrian amenity, walkability and presentation of the shopping strip.
Key improvements will include:
- Footpath upgrade including paving, and kerb and channel
- Landscaping, including new street trees
- Upgrade of street furniture
- Additional bike hoops
The construction phase will commence in May 2018 and conclude in November 2018. The works will be undertaken in stages, to minimise the disruption to the busy intersection.
Budget and timelines
- Project budget $1million
- Stage A, B, C - May - September 2018
- Asphalt Resheeting - October - November 2018
Major stages of the project
Consultation - Complete
A survey was undertaken in November 2016 to seek community feedback on the streetscape improvement.
A report and a one-page summary outlining community feedback from this survey is now available.
Design - Complete
Feedback received has informed the development of the Final Concept Design Plan (PDF 4Mb) which has sought to address various issues including safety, amenity, and presentation of the streetscape.
Council officers held an Information Session to discuss the community's comments and feedback on the Draft Concept Design, at the Holmes-Nicholson-Moreland Shopping Strip on 21 March 2017.
Stage 1 is due to commence 30 April and is anticipated to be completed by the end of November 2018.
During construction, access will be maintained to all stores in the shopping centre.
Council is working closely with the contractor to reduce the inconvenience that is inevitably created by any major infrastructure upgrade. However, there will be times when the works will create some unavoidable noise and debris.
We may also need to temporarily modify/divert pedestrian traffic, while the old concrete footpath is being demolished.
