Connecting our community through safe footpaths is one of the ways we’re building a better Manningham.
As part of our 2022-23 Capital Works Program, we’re constructing a footpath link along Porter Street through the road reserve.
Where is it?
We will construct the footpath along the southern side of Porter Street between Church Road and Niland Rise, Templestowe.
When will the works happen?
Works commenced in June 2023.
- Stage one - the section east of Church Road is complete.
- Stage two - the section west of Church Road is postponed due to both site conditions and design requirements.
Why is the footpath needed?
A section of the footpath is missing between Church Road and Niland Rise. The new footpath will create a connection to the bus stop and community facilities, including the reserve to the west and shops to the east.
How will the works affect me?
The works are not expected to cause major disruptions to nearby residents. Access through the reserve may be affected during construction.
We will make every effort to reduce inconvenience to residents. Thank you for your patience while we plan and undertake these important works.
