Footpath construction: Blackburn Road, Doncaster East - Chestnut Court to Anderson Creek Road

17 Nov 2022
Liveable Places and Spaces Doncaster East

Blackburn Road footpath is now complete!

Thank you to the community for your patience and understanding during construction.


As part of our footpath Capital Works Program, we're constructing a footpath along Blackburn Road, Doncaster East. The footpath will improve accessibility and connectivity.


Where is it?

Blackburn Road, Doncaster East, between Chestnut Court and Anderson Creek Road.

The footpath will be constructed in two stages:

  1. From Anderson Creek Road to Zerbe Avenue.
  2. From Zerbe Avenue to Chestnut Court 


Why is the footpath needed?

The new footpath will provide residents with a well-connected and safe all-weather footpath on the east side of Blackburn Road Doncaster East, between Chestnut Court and Anderson Creek Road.


When will the works happen?

The works are scheduled to start in January 2023.

We will provide updates if disruptions to the schedule occur.


How will the works affect me?

We may be required to close one lane of Blackburn Road. Appropriate detour signage and traffic management will be in place to assist with traffic flow and to provide guidance on access to your properties. We will notify residents whose properties will be directly affected.

We understand that this will cause inconvenience and will make every effort to minimise disruptions during construction.

Works will be programmed to minimise disruption to private properties and maintain emergency access and will generally be undertaken during normal working hours.
