Artist Impression: Church Street brighton median upgrade

Have you noticed road works taking place on Church St in Brighton?

Bayside Council is widening the centre median strip along Church St between St Andrews and Carpenter streets.

The $300,000 upgrade will improve this section of the popular shopping precinct, with works expected to be completed by late June.

Bayside Council’s director for infrastructure services Steven White said the upgrade to the median strip on Church St would help improve pedestrian safety.

As part of the revamp, 12 new Plane trees will be planted to enhance the visual appeal of the shopping precinct.

Mr White said the works will also make the street “greener and more attractive over time”.

Other streetscaping work will include bluestone planting beds and pedestrian areas with stainless steel bollards.

Church Street Brighton : Alternative parking

Parking and lane closures:

There will not be any permanent loss of car parks however, during the period of the works there will be a temporary reduction of parking bays and some temporary closures of on-street parking in Church St to accommodate construction.

The map above shows the areas that will be affected and an indication of alternate parking arrangements in the area.

The council is working to ensure minimal interruptions to traffic flow on Church St and the works are not expected to require full road closures.
