Creating public spaces where communities can thrive

The City of Melbourne embarked on an ambitious quest to create five new public spaces and neighbourhood parks for the people of Southbank. We were there to help make it happen.

We were appointed as the civil design team and, as part of the project, helped deliver new pedestrian walkways, parkland spaces, road facilities and detailed designs for traffic signals. We were able to provide geotechnical investigation, pavement design, track and overhead tram design, hydrology assessments, flood modelling and drainage design. The Traffic team worked to ensure pedestrians and cyclists were prioritised and provided in depth functional layout design, cyclist and pedestrian facility design, tram stop and track alignment design, traffic signal designs, line marking and signage, detailed civil documentation and construction/contract management. While there were some constraints on design due to the environment and working around tram lines while maintaining traffic and pedestrian movements, the team was able to deliver a practical and safe area for the people of Southbank and Melbourne to enjoy.

The updated Southbank Boulevard now provides people of the community a truly Melbourne experience. The Boulevard is now safe, accessible, and aesthetically pleasing for more than 18,000 residents to explore.
