Project update - May 2024

The consultation results were presented at the last Council Meeting on Tuesday 14 May. You can read the agenda, minutes and any supporting documents here.

What comes next?

The following elements will inform the future design for the northern section n of Wellington Street:

  • what we heard as part of the initial consultation held between Monday 9 October and Monday 6 November 2023
  • data on:
    • traffic flow in the area
    • parking
    • community safety

This initial concept design process is expected to take approximately 12 months to complete. The process involves:

  • concept designs of options
  • road safety auditing
  • peer reviews
  • options assessment
  • service checking
  • State Government approvals

In anticipation of this initial design process, the next opportunity for community feedback is scheduled for early 2025.

Concept designs and options will be shared with the community for feedback to inform a Council endorsed preferred design. We will reconnect with the community when these are available for feedback.

Around 2,000 people travel on Wellington Street by bike every day!

We're making walking, riding bikes and using scooters safer and more accessible for people of all ages and abilities. As part of this plan, we are completing the Wellington Street Strategic Cycling Corridor that has been more than ten years in the making.

There are also many strategic external projects happening soon that will impact Wellington Street and the wider area. We want to be ready for these and future changes. These projects include:

What has happened in this area?

These upgrades to the Wellington Street Strategic Cycling Corridor are part of delivering the New Deal for Cycling, which aims to improve Yarra’s active transport network to best practice standards.

These routes are identified in the Yarra Transport Strategy 2022-32 which was developed with extensive community consultation and expert advice over many years. This also aligns with the State Government’s Strategic Cycling Corridors.
