We're planning to make streetscape improvements at the corner of Pitt Street and Lygon Street in East Brunswick. The aim is to improve the overall presentation of this intersection and the pedestrian experience.

This project is part of the implementation of the Brunswick Activity Centre Structure Plan.

Proposed changes to the intersection 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 new street trees.
  • Remove the loading zone on the north side of the Pitt Street intersection. This will provide space for a rain garden to collect and filter stormwater.

Phase one of community consultation was held in December 2019. From this feedback, a draft concept plan was developed addressing safety, amenity and the presentation of the public area.

Feedback on the draft concept plan was sought in phase two of community consultation held across February and March 2020. The final concept plan is now available to view below.

We are currently awaiting VCAT's verdict for Case P1683/2020 - the proposal to develop a Bunnings store at 145 Glenlyon Road & 6 Pitt Street. The outcome and details of this case will determine whether further design work is required for the public realm works before Tender and Construction commences.
