We’ve listened to your ideas on how to improve your local streets and create better spaces for the community.

We consulted the community in July and December 2018 on ways we can improve safety and manage traffic flow in Fitzroy North.

We received an overwhelming response from the community. Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute.

Making our streets safer – particularly for children and pedestrians – was a recurring theme in this consultation.

Based on what you told us, we have prepared a plan based on this feedback.

Plan highlights

To improve safety and traffic flow, this plan includes:

  • Trialling a median island on Miller Street at Rae Street and White Street
  • Trialling a median island on Holden Street at Brunswick Street North and Dean Street
  • Partial road closure on Rae Street, with no exit to Alexandra Parade
  • Closing the laneway to the west of Rae Street

We will start constructing these early 2020, subject to approval from VicRoads, endorsement from Council, and further community consultation.

The other traffic treatments outlined in the plan will be delivered subject to funding being allocated in future council budgets.
