Streetscape Pitt Street and Lygon Street

 

Project Background

Council is undertaking the design for streetscape improvements for the corner of Pitt Street and Lygon Street, Brunswick. The aim is to improve pedestrian amenity, accessibility, walkability, and presentation at this intersection.

Draft Concept

We are seeking feedback on the draft concept plan for the upgrade of the Pitt Street and Lygon Street intersection in Brunswick. The draft concept plan is available to view below. You can also request a hard copy via phone or email as per contact details below, or view the plans at the Civic Centre, 90 Bell Street, Coburg

This streetscape upgrade project is part of the continual implementation of the Brunswick Structure Plan.

We received feedback from community consultation in December 2019. The  development of the draft concept plan included this feedback. The draft concept plan address safety, amenity and the presentation of the public area. View the community consultation findings at www.moreland.vic.gov.au/pitt-street-improvements.

The proposed design in the draft concept plan will:

  • Improve accessibility for a diverse range of age and mobility needs;
  • Result in traffic calming through streetscape design;
  • Improve the look and feel of Pitt Street with new footpaths, raised pedestrian crossing, seating, bins and bike racks.;
  • Greening of the area through landscaping and a new street tree; and
  • Remove a loading zone on the north side of the Pitt Street intersection. This will  provide space for a raingarden to collect and filter stormwater.
