Bookending the northern tip of Buckingham Avenue are two large scale contemporary Asian influenced gateways announcing your entrance to the heart of sensational Springvale.
The gateways are part of a streetscape upgrade including canoe-like cast bench seats, tactile footpath paving treatments that mimic pools of water, bicycle racks, bins and the relocation of overhead powerlines underground.
The Buckingham Avenue gateways were designed as part of a streetscape upgrade to rejuvenate Buckingham Avenue and reflect the Asian influence in community, cuisine and trade of Greater Dandenong’s most established cultural precincts.
Underpinned by the Springvale Structure Plan, the Buckingham Avenue Gateways and streetscape upgrade were co-funded by Council, the Department of Sustainability and Environment through the Pride of Place Program and the Department of Infrastructure through its Power Line Relocation Committee.
