Anderson Road Shopping Strip, Fawkner - Streetscape improvements

Anderson Rd Complete - side viewProject overview

The Anderson Road shopping strip in Fawkner improvement project was part of Council’s shopping strip renewal program.

This project delivered improvements to the streetscape at the Anderson Road shopping strip in Fawkner including:

  • Footpath reconstruction along with new paving, and new tree planting and garden beds, which will improve the look and feel of the shopping strip.
  • New street furniture - seats, bins and bike hoops.
  • New pedestrian crossing across Anderson Road and new raised crossings across Selola Court William Street, making it safer to walk around the shopping strip.
  • A new disabled car parking bay on Anderson Road to improve disabled access.
  • Introducing six parking bays in Selola Court William Street. The new pedestrian crossing will lead to loss of three car parks on Anderson Road resulting in an overall net gain of three parking spaces for the shopping strip.
  • New rain gardens which will catch stormwater, treat it and improve its quality before it runs to Merri Creek.
