Updated path design for Taroona Avenue

We have an updated path design for the Taroona Avenue section (Stage Three) of the Main Yarra Trail Extension.

The updated design has been influenced by valuable feedback received from the residents of Taroona Avenue, the Warrandyte Community Association, and the broader Warrandyte community.

Key features of the proposed design include:

  • Installation of a 1.5-metre-wide concrete footpath, ensuring a safe and comfortable journey for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Implementation of efficient drainage infrastructure to maintain optimal conditions along the path.
  • Thoughtful consideration of minor landscaping elements wherever possible, enhancing the aesthetics and natural surroundings.
  • Introduction of a safety-enhancing fence along the path section closest to Everard Drive.
  • Improved parking facilities along Taroona Avenue, addressing the needs of the community.
  • Consideration of the Manningham Green Wedge Infrastructure Plan to ensure that the works are sustainable and sympathetic to the semi-rural character of the area.

What’s next for this project?

We’re now working with relevant agencies and authorities to finalise the detailed design. Once completed, we will initiate the necessary planning permit application process and undertake a cultural heritage investigation specifically for Taroona Avenue. As a part of the works some tree pruning may be required and this will be undertaken by a qualified arborist.

We welcome any feedback on the proposed plan. Feedback can be provided:
