Streets for People Preston Activity Link

Map of Preston Activity Link corridor including Cramer Street from Eric Street and Elizabeth Street to St Georges Road, and Gower Street from Plenty Road to Chifley Drive.

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 Preston Activity Link. 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 Preston Activity Link which includes Eric Street and Cramer Street in the west and Chifley Drive 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, train stations, local business and schools. This route is also being considered for designation as a primary 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


What's next?

Thank you for your feedback!

Please note, we require further investigation and testing of our options for the Preston Activity Link. As a result we will be postponing Stage 2 of our community engagement until later in 2019. We want to make sure we get this right!
