Jumping Creek Road Upgrade Project - Feb 2023
We are delighted to inform you that the detailed design for the Jumping Creek Road Project is nearing completion. The design aims to improve road safety, create a recreational trial whilst preserving the natural look and feel of the area.
You can view the proposed design here: Your Say Manningham - Jumping Creek Road - Plans
Also, we are pleased to inform you that the wildlife protection netting installation is completed, and wildlife monitoring devices are coming next. In addition, the planting between the Warrandyte roundabout and Nelson Drive Northern side is completed. Also, preparation of the Southern side of this section is completed, and planting is planned for the next planting season. While we are focusing on the current works, it was not forgotten that trees had been removed a few years back while constructing the bridge. At the time of bridge construction, the seed had been taken from native and indigenous trees and grown in the Friends of Warrandyte State Park Nursery. The number of 300 grown-up trees had been planted around the bridge in August 2022 to cover the loss.
Furthermore, the footpath from Warrandyte roundabout to Nelson Drive has been reconstructed to address the public concern regarding the effects of the footpath constructed as part of stage one works. The footpath works will be continued with the next stages of construction planned to be started in the second quarter of 2023.
Public drop-in information sessions are planned to be held from the 20/03/23 till the 23/03/23 and will allow anyone interested to provide further feedback and or information on the project. Details of the session can be found here: Your Say Manningham Letter/Public Sessions
We aim to make our beautiful Jumping Creek Road safe for road users and more attractive for visitors to encourage their travels and support the local businesses and economy.
