Gardiners Creek set for upgrade

One of Melbourne’s most popular commuter and recreation bike routes — the Gardiners Creek Trail — looks set for an upgrade in the coming years.

And not just the bike route, the whole creek corridor is being assessed for re-vegetation and biodiversity, water management, recreation facilities and general environmental improvements.

The work will be undertaken as part of a new Master Plan for the Creek corridor by the City of Stonnington.

Gardiners Creek has tremendous potential for amenity improvement. Like many of Melbourne’s waterways it has been compromised by more than a century of road and flood control engineering.

Bike riders are always keen to see these routes looking more natural, attractive and relaxing, as well as safe and well-connected.

Now we have an opportunity to have our say on how the corridor could be improved.

As consultants begin the plan, the City wants to get bike rider input from the very start about what they would like to see changed along the corridor.

The community engagement process and opportunities are available here.

Make sure you have your say with the online survey available until 7 April.

You can visit a pop up session on TH King Oval from 9am to 12pm on Saturday 23 March 2019, where representatives from consultants McGregor Coxall and Council staff will be on hand to chat about the proposed master plan and capture your ideas.

You can attend a workshop to discuss your ideas at 7-9pm, Wednesday 27 March at TH King Pavilion, 1650 High St, Glen Iris. Make sure to Register with environment@stonnington.vic.gov.au.

The council hopes to have the plan completed by September this year.
