Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

As part of our ongoing asset renewal and maintenance program, we're undertaking minor safety and amenity works at Macedon Square.

Improving and maintaining the safety and amenity of our local shopping centres is a priority for us. Our Council Plan demonstrates our commitment to enhancing our activity centres and supporting traders to ensure thriving local businesses, as well as community accessibility and safety.

The works include:

Stage one: completed in July 2023

  • Installation of safety bollards along the footpath of Macedon Road to the front of the shopping strip.

Stage two: completed in December 2023

  • fixing broken and uneven pavers and footpaths
  • replacing cracked concrete kerbs
  • removing (and replacing) a small number of trees where required (for e.g., if tree roots are cracking the kerb or pavers).

Stage three: current

Early 2024

  • Installing bollards and realigning the kerb on the east side of Macedon Road (outside Riddik Café)
  • Replacing damaged kerb and uneven pavers.
  • Replacing the bluestone crossing points with asphalt wombat crossings. The bluestone pavers will be re-purposed within the centre.
  • Installing structural cells in some car parks near trees to support tree growth.

During this time, there may be temporary disruptions to some parking and access as we direct traffic around the works. We will work in small sections to ensure minimal impact on centre users. There will be clear signage to guide you, and traffic management on site when required.

Mid-2024

• Asphalting and line marking of the entire car park.

• Upgrade to parking signage within the centre.


We aim for these works to be completed with minimal disruption to traders and visitors to Macedon Square.
Please note that Manningham Council is a signatory to the Small Business Friendly Council Charter which commits us to minimise disruption to traders during works. You can read more at the Victorian Small Business Commission.
