Reporting Crime

Police have asked for residents to call 000 for all Police related matters in our community and not to call the local police station (unless you are specifically in contact with a representative).  000 calls are all logged and provide police with statistics which enables them to allocate resources where required on an on-going basis.  Note:  The police will need to prioritise your calls depending on danger to people etc.

St Kilda Junction PTV Substation – update June 2019.

St Kilda Junction Substation - Architectural Options

We have been advised that “The installation of the façade has been delayed and will commence on 27 June 2019. Installation is scheduled to be complete by end July 2019. Additional time was required by the constructor and architect to ensure that the precise formwork of the metal structure would be true to the architectural intent of the design. Manufacturing of the metal structure has commenced off site. Landscaping, plantings and the installation of the turf cell will occur after the façade installation is finished and is scheduled to be complete mid-August 2019.

Nearby residents and business will be notified in advance of construction and activities. Some activities will be required to occur at night as to not impact tram services.”

St Kilda Junction Masterplan – update March 2019

IMG_3024

The Department of Transport have been working with City of Port Phillip to co-ordinate a detailed project plan for a joint study for the Junction. The study intends to firstly assess the urban design and amenity issues affecting all transport users, residents and workers throughout the area.  The study will also collect background data to inform a set of strategic directions and principles for the future movement and place functions for the Junction.

The Inner Metropolitan Partnership Assembly meetings will continue through 2019 and JAAG will continue to contribute to these forums.

St Kilda Junction is one of the most complex convergence of roads in Port Phillip (Queens Road, St Kilda Road, Punt Road, Fitzroy Street and Barkly Street). It serves as a gateway to Fitzroy Street, St Kilda Beach and the foreshore, and remains a key intersection for vehicular, bicycle, walking and public transport movements.  The last five years has seen increased high scale residential development south of St Kilda Junction ranging from 8 to 26 storeys. The increased growth has impacted on the local amenity and changes are required to protect and enhance the liveability of new residents.
