The Green Spine rolls on as consultation for the next stage is planned. Design and engagement contracts have been awarded to WSP Australia and GHD Group, and over the coming months stakeholders and the community will be invited to provide feedback to help inform the design to Eastern Park.
As block 1 (Gheringhap to Moorabool streets) approaches completion, the next stage of design and construction (Yarra to Bellarine streets) will commence.
This project will deliver significant change to central Geelong’s Malop Street, as the spectacular ‘botanic walk’ continues along the south side of the street.
The Green Spine project aims to create an ecological and active transport link between Johnstone Park and Eastern Gardens, to transform this key east-west route in central Geelong into a vibrant street and linear park.
As a key corridor through central Geelong, the Green Spine will help deliver an integrated transport system, with a particular focus on pedestrians and cyclists in the city centre once complete.
Construction of Block 3 (Yarra to Bellerine streets) is scheduled to commence early 2022 and be completed in the same year.
The project is being delivered as part of the 10-year Revitalising Central Geelong Action Plan, a partnership between the City of Greater Geelong and the State Government. Funding is provided through the $382.48 million Geelong City Deal, a collaborative program to transform Geelong and the Great Ocean Road by the Australian and Victorian Governments and the City of Greater Geelong.
