Village­­ St revitalised

By Kate Mani

After six months of redevelopment, the Village St transformation is now complete, with the previously busy road converted into a bike and pedestrian friendly precinct.

The Development Victoria upgrade allows the street to be used for festivals, live performances and other community events, making the most of its location near the Bourke St restaurant precinct and Etihad Stadium.

Most notably, traffic conditions between Bourke St and Fishplate Lane have changed, turning the two-way street into a one-way street with traffic flowing north towards the stadium.

Further implementations as part of the $1.4 million project include additional seating and bike hoops, new planter beds, trees and bluestone paving and improved street lighting.

Development Victoria’s general manager Simon Wilson said the upgrade provides Village St with a new look and local businesses are excited by the revitalisation.

“As well as the greening of the street, the change in traffic conditions now gives priority to pedestrians and cyclists, allowing Village Street to become a space for events,” he said.

“The local restaurants and businesses have been really supportive of this project as they see a real opportunity to activate the space.”
