Recently completed projects

 Project Background 

 Airport West Green Spine

""

 

The Airport West Easement Linear Reserve is being upgraded to become a Green Spine; a community focused open space.

This project was completed in June 2018.          

 

Union Road Streetscape

""

As part of our continuing work to upgrade the Union Road shopping precinct, we are creating an outdoor space for the Ascot Vale Library. The proposed design will create a vibrant and playful outdoor library space that will provide increased seating for this small library.

This project was completed in June 2018.                       

 Fairbairn Park Pavilion

""

Consolidating two aged pavilions, the new Fairbairn Park Middle Pavilion is raised above the flood plain and offers fantastic views of the playing fields and river, designed to house two clubs simultaneously or operate as one large social or community space.

This project was completed in February 2018.

Riverside Park

""

Upgrades to the playspace and carpark at Riverside Park. These improvements compliment the Pirate Ship playspace built in 2014, and are an initiative from the Maribyrnong River Master Plan. Check out the upgrade in this video.

This project was completed in January 2018.

Travancore Park shared path

""

Cyclists and park lovers now get to experience Travancore Park more safely with the opening of a new shared path.

The 3 metre wide concrete path runs along the edge of the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail and features a barrier fence between the path and embankment, a path link to Myrnong Crescent, seating relocated to a more shady location and an additional drinking fountain. This is part of our commitment to developing open spaces that encourage and support walking and cycling. Watch this video to see the new path. 

This project was completed in November 2017.

 

Pridham Plaza

"" 

The improved plaza includes bespoke seating areas, planting, feature paving, lighting, outdoor Wi-Fi, bike repair station, three phase power for outdoor performances and artwork by local artist Majed Fayad. Watch the fly-through video highlighting these features.

The refurbished plaza officially opened on Friday, 10 November 2017.

Bloomfield Road

""

This project involved installing a raised platform at the Bloomfield Road and The Crescent intersection and installing a direct shared path under the railway line overpass on the east approach to The Crescent in Ascot Vale.

The Bloomfield Road underpass is an important east-west connection for pedestrians and cyclists commuting to Middle Street and Queens Avenue. The new underpass provides separate bike lanes and a pedestrian path which minimises conflict between pedestrians and cyclists. The new raised platform intersection treatment slows vehicles approaching the intersection, making it safer for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the street.

Finally, the lighting at the underpass was upgraded which has enhanced visibility and made it safer to use the underpass.

This project was completed in August 2017.

New dog park at Alf Pearce Reserve

""

We opened Moonee Valley's very first dog park at Alf Pearce Reserve in Strathmore, providing our four-legged friends with a permanent fenced area to socialise, explore and play off-lead. The design was carefully considered to incorporate best practise principals for dog parks and included advice from veterinary experts. Watch this video to see how it's been embraced by the community.

The dog park opened in July 2017.

Washington Street treatments from St Therese’s Construction of two road humps and threshold treatment at Buckley Street.  
McNamara Avenue Wombat Crossing Improves safety and encourages walking by connecting the shared path across McNamara Avenue.
