We design and deliver a packed program of capital works to make your neighbourhood a great place to live, work and visit.
Whether we’re upgrading roads, lighting and footpaths or transforming the banks of the Birrarung into a lush paradise – it’s all about investing in Melbourne’s past, present and future.
Recent highlights include modern new facilities at Brens Pavilion in Royal Park and the upgraded southern sports field at Fawkner Park – a place enjoyed by 9000 locals every day. Music lovers can also stroll to a concert at Hamer Hall along the refreshed Southbank Promenade.
Later this year, you’ll be able to stop for a bite at Queen Victoria Market’s new food hall, then cross the road to explore our new Munro library and community hub, with its makerspace, sound studios and rooftop terrace.
Upcoming capital works
The Greenline Project
This landmark project will enhance the natural, cultural and community aspects of the north bank of the Yarra River – Birrarung. Ultimately, The Greenline Project will allow you to stroll from the MCG to Docklands through 4 kms of connected parklands and boardwalks.
Watch as one of Melbourne’s most loved laneway destinations gets a refresh. With drainage works complete, it’s now time to swap red brick for bluestone pavers, replace declining trees and install new lighting.
Keep up to date with the latest developments as we begin restoration works to this historic landmark. Built in 1888, Princes Bridge remains one of the Yarra River – Birrarung’s most iconic crossings. We’re restoring the bridge to ensure it can continue to support residents, workers and visitors into the future.
Queen Victoria Market
Have your say on our plans for Market Square, a new open space located on the site of the existing car park. Key market infrastructure like refrigerated storage and delivery zones will be moving underground. This will be safer and more practical for market traders, and it will allow us to create more welcoming community spaces.
Works on Brens Pavilion will wrap up soon, delivering better and more inclusive facilities for women. The new facility will include eight gender-neutral, accessible change rooms, two umpire change rooms, a first aid room and improvements to the existing kitchen and social spaces.
Dodds Street Linear Park
Bliss out among 1300 sqm of grassland and 35 trees when this new urban parkland opens to the public late this year. This welcoming new landscape will be resilient and sustainable, with inbuilt rain gardens.
Kensington Community Aquatic and Recreation Centre
Works in this state-of-the-art facility will ramp up this year, with doors set to open in early 2025. It will feature a 25-metre pool, improved gym facilities, a kids’ water-play area, three full-sized multipurpose courts, health and wellness areas, flexible spaces for classes and community uses, accessible change rooms and a new cafe.
