Pascoe Vale Road, Glenroy - Streetscape improvements

Project background

Council upgraded the streetscape on Pascoe Vale Road, Glenroy in stages.

The streetscape improvement was part of Council's commitment to improving local retail precincts throughout Merri-bek.

The purpose of the project was to improve the pedestrian amenity, safety, and overall presentation of the Pascoe Vale Road shopping strip for residents, businesses and visitors.

The upgrade consisted of:

  • upgrading the footpath surface with new concrete pavers
  • installing raised pedestrian crossings at key side streets, and
  • construction of water sensitive rain gardens to treat runoff from the streets.
