The Springvale Boulevard Project will transform Springvale Road into a signature boulevard, reinforcing the activity centre as one of Melbourne’s leading cultural destinations.
The City of Greater Dandenong has undertaken extensive community consultation which focused on seeking visionary ideas for Springvale Road from the community. Thanks to your valuable input we now have a design proposal which we believe reflects the community aspirations collected from over 1000 people.
Improvements include widened footpaths for pedestrian and trader activities, new garden beds and more trees, more seating, improved street lighting and new public artwork.
About the project
The project will leverage the recent $159 million level crossing removal project, which has seen the railway station upgraded and the creation of a new southern public space connecting to Springvale retail shopping strip.
The project aims to transform Springvale Road between Lightwood Road and Windsor Avenue into a signature boulevard. Streetscape improvements will help reinforce the activity centre as one of Melbourne’s leading cultural destinations.
All community ideas and feedback have been considered during the design phase of the project. The design phase is now complete with construction expected to start in 2020.
