Yarana Road Shared Path Landscaping

As communicated late last year, Council allocated funding for the design and implementation of landscaping works along the Yarana Road Shared Path, including the relocation of some essential services.

These works are due to commence from Tuesday 11 June 2019 and are likely to take approximately three weeks, subject to weather.

Works will include:

  • The planting of indigenous trees, shrubs and groundcovers
  • The planting of indigenous creepers on the Melbourne Innovation Centre fence
  • The planting of additional native street trees
  • The development of a community meeting area including trees, garden beds, custom bluestone seats and timber seats

In addition to this, I am pleased to let you know that additional funding has been provided to complete the following additional items:

  • Replacement of the existing old post and wire fence with a timber post and rail fence to match the existing timber fence along Yarana Road near Parklands Avenue
  • Reconfiguration of the northern section of the new Yarana Road Shared Path to create a better connection between the old and new shared paths and a safer connection with Parklands Avenue

We will also be hosting a community planting day on Sunday 30 June from 10am to midday. Refreshments will be provided, and all are welcome.


What is the Yarana Road Shared Path?

The Yarana Road Shared Path was constructed earlier in 2018 and connects Darebin Parklands with Wingrove Street and Alphington Railway Station.

Works included an independent safety audit of the path, line marking, relocation of the boundary fence at 2 Wingrove St and permanent fence installation along the boundary between the shared path and the Melbourne Innovation Centre (MIC).

What are we doing?

Council has allocated further funding this financial year for the design and construction of landscaping and new planting along the new path. This includes the relocation of some essential services to enhance the look and feel of the path.

We created a Concept Plan for the landscape works along the shared path and sought community feedback. You can view the Concept Plan here.
