McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park Link
3 May 2012
We have been in discussions with Frankston City Council and the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park to identify strategic routes that would provide people with greater destination choices in this area. The McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park are located on McCelland Drive, close to Cranbourne Road. Campaigning for increased connectivity to this cultural precinct may help to provide greater significance to the establishment of a recreation route linking Eumemmering Creek to Frankston.
Transport and recreation link needs to be made
08 July 2010 A short and achievable link from Dandenong Creek, along Box St and Wattle Drive needs to solved. This would have huge benefits for relatively little effort and investment due to the existing network currently funnelling into this bottle neck.
With the recent upgrading of the Dandenong Creek path by Dandenong Council and the completion of the 36km EastLink path nearby, this missing link is all that is needed to see a continuous network from Berwick to the Bay Trail in Carrum and the soon to arrive Peninsula Link path to Mornington or Ringoood in the north and beyond to the CBD. Local schools would also benefit from this link being completed.
Council has investigated the route. All it needs is funding.
