Project Background

Nillumbik Shire Council has received $5 million from the Federal Government for transport improvements along the Main Road corridor in Eltham.

We have developed a number of proposals to create a more pedestrian-friendly and connected Eltham Activity Centre, encouraging sustainable and active travel, thereby reducing traffic congestion and increasing safety in the precinct.

The improvements include new and upgraded pedestrian crossings, traffic signal changes, traffic management treatments, car parking at Eltham Central Oval and a new 40km/h speed limit for all roads in the Eltham Activity Centre.

Ways you can have a say

Review the concepts that have been developed that show what the traffic treatments could look like and provide feedback below.

Come along to an information session in the Eltham Town Centre where Council Officers will have project fact sheets, technical drawings and before and after illustrations available for inspection and discussion. Details under 'Information Sessions'.

Feedback closes 5pm, Friday 23 July

Next Steps

Council will consider submissions at the 14 September 2021 Planning and Consultation Committee, where submitters will also be able to make verbal statements to Council.
