Malop St Artists Impression

The Green Spine project will transform Malop Street into a vibrant street and linear park, connecting from Johnstone Park to Eastern Park.

The project will deliver more trees and green spaces to the heart of the city, transforming it into an attractive and inviting place - a City in a Park.

There are six city blocks along Malop Street, each providing a unique opportunity to reflect the diverse uses and values of that block. Consultation with the community and stakeholders, including business and residents that front Malop Street, is an essential part of the design phase for each block.

The block between Moorabool Street and Yarra Street is now complete. It was the first block to be constructed due to the immediate benefits that would come to the CBD on its completion, showcasing the shopping and alfresco experience as well as the passive transport benefits of the Green Spine.

Plans for the block between Gheringhap Street and Moorabool Street are currently in development, and will be ready for the tender process when funding becomes available for this section.
