The concept plans for the remainder of the Jumping Creek Road upgrade are now complete, with the detailed design process to be undertaken in late 2021 and works commencing in late 2022.
Council is planning to be invest over $17.9m over five years to upgrade this major road that will see a reconstruction of the full length of the road from Ringwood-Warrandyte Road in Warrandyte to Homestead Road in Wonga Park. We will also advocate to the State and Federal Government for further funding for this road and associated detours.
Stage one of construction works were completed last year, and it is exciting to now present the concept plans for the remainder of the road upgrade.
Throughout the development of the concept plans, Council has obtained feedback from the community and worked closely with the Jumping Creek Road Community Reference Panel.
Manningham Mayor, Cr Andrew Conlon said that these concept plans were developed with the community and would be another step towards the upgrade of this important road.
“Manningham Council is proud to be another step closer to upgrading this road which will see safety improvements as well as increased vegetation, a mixed use trail, wildlife protection measures, improved road useability and an upgrade to the township intersection and streetscape,” Cr Conlon said.
“We thank those who had input into the design of the concept plans and we look forward to commencing works on this important project.”
Council will be running virtual drop-in sessions to share the concept plans with the wider community – the sessions will be held on zoom at the following times:
- Session 1 – Thursday 21 October; 18:00 – 19:30
- Session 2 – Monday 25 October; 18:00- 19:30
Register your attendance at the virtual drop-in sessions.
