Footpath construction: Wood Street, Templestowe

26 Apr 2023
Liveable Places and Spaces Templestowe

This project is complete!

We have completed the project, but we will be on site to fix any final defects and clean up.
We would like to thank the community for their patience and understanding during the construction process.

Connecting our community through safe footpaths is one of the ways we’re building a better Manningham.

As part of our 2023/24 Capital Works Program, we’re constructing the missing section of footpath between 80 and 98 Wood Street, Templestowe, to improve safety and accessibility. 


This project will include:

  • construction of a footpath
  • kerb and channel
  • installation of underground drainage


Where is it?

We will construct the footpath on the south side of Wood Street (between McLachlan Street and Milne Street) in Templestowe.

Why is the footpath needed?

This project aims to improve all-weather safety and connectivity for pedestrians travelling through the area. It will link nearby footpaths and provide improved accessibility and a safe, all-weather connection for pedestrians.

Installing kerb and channel and underground stormwater drainage will assist in directing stormwater into drains. 


When will the works happen?

The project commenced in late September. As of late December, the footpath is mostly complete and open to pedestrians. We will be back on site in mid January to complete final touch-ups.


How will the works affect me?

We will make every effort to reduce inconvenience to residents, motorists and pedestrians as we progress this project.

uring these works, please allow extra time to travel safely through the area and follow directions indicated by signage and traffic controllers. between the hours of 7.00am and 5.00pm on weekdays, and emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times.

Please note that we may store materials and machinery on the nature strip in Wood Street, and some small street trees may need to be removed. However, we will replant vegetation whenever possible once the project is complete.


Thank you for your patience while we plan and undertake these important works.
