Streets for People Northern Reservoir Corridor

Map of Northern Reservoir Corridor, including Broadhurst Avenue from the Merri Creek to High Street, and Crookston Road from Cheddar Road to the Darebin Creek.

In 2018, the City of Darebin launched an exciting project to transform part of our local street network into more people-friendly places.

Project Background

As our city continues to grow, the role and function of our local streets is changing. Darebin City Council is committed to working with our community to help define what our streets will look and feel like in the future.

Following a successful consultation in 2018 for our first Streets for People Corridor in Thornbury / Northcote (available in the document library), we are now seeking community feedback for our next study location, the Northern Reservoir Corridor. In October 2018, the Streets for People Feasibility Study was endorsed by Council, and two of the eight corridors were selected for investigation in 2019 - the Preston Activity Link, and the Northern Reservoir Corridor. The focus of this study is the Northern Reservoir Corridor which includes Broadhurst Avenue in the west and Crookston Road and McMahon Road (between Boldrewood Parade and the Darebin Creek Trail), in the east (shown in the above map).

The corridor is affected by its intersections with major roads, and accommodates high levels of local walking and cycling activity by a range of people of all ages and abilities moving between homes, Ruthven train station, local schools and creek trails. This route is also being considered for designation as a primary or secondary transport cycling route as part of the State Government's Strategic Cycling network. These various transport considerations must be balanced with the need to provide safe and attractive streets for the local community to not only use, but also enjoy and be proud of.

Our vision for the Streets for People project is:

to create a neighbourhood that is safe, green, clean and welcoming

From now until Sunday 19th May, you will be able to provide feedback for Stage 2:
