The realignment of Robinson and Masons Streets is part of a longer-term aspiration for Revitalising Central Dandenong to improve the length of Robinson from Princes Highway to Walker Street.
Robinson Street is a major north south link on the periphery of central Dandenong, providing access to the office and retail functions west of Lonsdale Street. Robinson Street is cut off at Walker Street, with vehicular and pedestrian traffic diverted onto Mason Street, near Hutton Street.
The realignment aims to improve connectivity, reduce congestion and support traffic circulation.
What was delivered?
- A safer street environment to address recorded traffic accidents
- New raised platforms to enhance pedestrian safety
- A new bus stop repositioned to align with the realigned roadway
- Additional open space with grass as a holding treatment for future landscape
- Tree planting
The realignment of Robinson and Masons Streets delivers a functional traffic access to central Dandenong but discourages large volumes of through traffic. It improves urban design to provide safe and pedestrian friendly public realm.
The project objectives are:
- Development of a high-quality streetscape that is safe and welcoming for the public,
- Ensure that the role of Robinson and Mason Streets as primary collector roads servicing the western sector of central Dandenong is emphasised,
- Enable traffic access to central Dandenong, but deter large volumes of through traffic, and
- Retain on street parking provision.
How is this project being funded?
This project has been funded by the City of Greater Dandenong Council’s capital improvement program to the value of $400,000.
