Revitalising Springvale

Project Background

Springvale is just 29km from Melbourne’s central business district, with easy access to three major transport arterials including; Springvale Road, Princes Highway and Pakenham Cranbourne Rail Line. With a predominant retail focus, Springvale is the second largest activity centre in Greater Dandenong.

Its residential catchment of approximately 21,000 begins within a 10 minute walk of the Activity Centre. The undergrounding of Springvale Station has been the catalyst for investment and construction is underway to transform  Springvale Road into a signature boulevard, anchored by an architecturally striking hub of community facilities, civic hall and library.

The Revitalisation of Springvale is supported by the Victorian Government, through Office of Suburban Development, in partnership with the City of Greater Dandenong.

Springvale Boulevard

The Springvale Boulevard will be an iconic gateway to Sensational Springvale. The boulevard will feature widened footpaths, new garden beds and more trees providing year-round shade, more seating, improved street lighting, and high-quality, thought-provoking design elements that reflect the diverse cultures of Springvale.  

Together with the recently completed Springvale Hub project, Springvale Boulevard will celebrate the area’s rich cultural tapestry and create a renewed sense of pride in the Springvale Activity Centre.  The project will serve as a model for urban revitalisation in Australia.
