City of Melbourne is creating an inviting and functional space on Lonsdale Street with new cafe screen planter boxes and an improved footpath.

Works were scheduled to begin mid-May 2022, but were held up due to supply chain delays.

The works will now begin mid-June 2022and. are expected to finish early August 2022.

The Street upgrades will include:

  • removing of five existing cafe shelters
  • repairing broken bluestone pavers
  • reinstating Hellenic Greek edge stone pavers
  • installing new stainless steel planter boxes with lush greenery
  • installing new irrigation systems for the planters boxes and permeable paving system around tree bases.

Once complete, this project will enhance the visual appearance of the area and provide an open space for traders to set up dining facilities.

Timing and impacts

The works will be between Russell Street and Tattersalls Lane. A fencing and cage compound will be in place around the work area.

Access to residential properties and businesses will be maintained at all times, however the footpaths will be narrowed for the duration of the works.
