  1. Construction of the 1st stage of the Wellington St upgrade program i.e. the Upton Rd intersection – completed 27 April 2016 with only landscaping to be installed.
  2. JAAG requested the next stage of the Wellington St upgrade be included in the budget i.e. the kerb outstands recommended for Wellington Street – works to be completed in the 2016/17 financial year.
  3. Installation of a wide circular walking path in the middle of the tan bark areas at Alma Park – opened 30 April 2016.
  4. Council are also looking into the watering system to regenerate the large area of Alma Park that has become a dust bowl.
  5. Wellington St median street trees- works to be completed in the 2016/17 financial year.
  6. Improvements to Dandenong Rd intersection – this will be a 2017/18 budget item.
  7. There are other major projects such as the DDA compliant tram stops in Fitzroy Street & St Kilda Junction underpass – whilst not a budget item Council will help to advocate for these with State Government.
