Myers Street unifying works

The Myers Street streetscape works is the first of many greening projects to be delivered as part of the Central Geelong Action Plan to revitalise the city and improve how it looks and feels.

The scope of works included:

  • a zebra pedestrian crossing from Star Street to St John of God, to facilitate safe pedestrian movements and access to the hospital.

  • new street furniture and pedestrian lighting.

  • street tree plantings in the road reserve in order to facilitate passive watering through the collection of stormwater from the roadway.  Importantly this avoids impacts on overhanging awnings of adjacent buildings.

  • a median upgrade, to the western end, including street tree planting and ground level greening. 

  • bike lane green treatments to both sides of the street will improve cyclist safety by providing a defined cycling lane along Myers Street.

  • outstands to narrow the length of pedestrian crossings at the intersections of Gheringhap and Moorabool Streets.

The construction and landscaping phase of the project is complete with the first of our new street furniture designs in place!

The project is co-funded by the State Government of Victoria through the Local Government Infrastructure Program.
