Springvale residents can look forward to improved streetscapes and public artworks thanks to investment from the Victorian Government.
Minister for Suburban Development Shaun Leane last week visited Springvale Boulevard, where works are currently underway for the revitalisation project.
The redevelopment is designed to improve pedestrian experience and safety, and includes the upgrading of paving, seating, improved lighting, better greenery with more shade trees, and streetscape public art reflecting the diverse cultures of Springvale.
The Labor Government is investing $900,000 allocated in Victorian Budget 2021/22 specifically for revitalising Springvale Boulevard. Greater Dandenong City Council has also made over $5 million in contributions.
The redevelopment of Springvale Boulevard will enhance shopping and dining experiences, create new opportunities for people to connect and relax, and for community celebrations.
The Suburban Revitalisation Program supports projects in activity centres across Metropolitan Melbourne, helping our suburbs thrive.
The program works with local stakeholders to identify, plan and deliver economic, infrastructure, community development and place-making initiatives focused on driving localised social and economic outcomes.
The Government is encouraging suburban revitalisation as a way of strengthening Melbourne’s liveability and to drive economic opportunity and jobs growth, closer to where people live.
