We are proposing to install a pedestrian refuge near Molan Street and Arlington Street to allow pedestrians to undertake a staged crossing of the road. This location has been chosen as it will improve safety for pedestrians moving between the residential catchment to the east of New Street and Heatherdale Station (via Molan Street).
Council’s Principal Pedestrian Network (PPN) proposes the construction of the missing section of footpath along the west side of New Street, from 100 New Street to Sylvia Grove. This footpath will be included in the overall design for the New Street renewal works, however while it has been listed for future footpath construction, there are no short term plans (within the next five years) to construct this footpath.
Council’s PPN and five (5) year construction program can be viewed on our website at http://www.maroondah.vic.gov.au/Development/Roads-footpaths-and-drains/Roads-and-footpaths/New-footpaths-and-the-Principal-Pedestrian-Network
FAQ's which addresses some of the more common questions from the community regarding the PPN and construction priorities are also available via this link.
