Oakleigh Western Gateway Activation Project

In December 2017, Council upgraded the Warrigal Road underpass at Chester Street and Haughton Road, to improve community safety in the area.  

These works were carried out following resident concerns that these areas are unsightly, with bill posters and graffiti regularly plastered along the walls of the underpass. 

The works included:

  • Installation of LED lighting 
  • Widening of footpaths 
  • Removal of graffiti
  • Application of art murals on the walls 
  • Improved seating 
  • Beautification of the area. 

Extensive community consultation was undertaken to guide the concept and creation of the art work. 

The Western Gateway Activation project was a joint initiative of Council and State Government. The project was funded by the State Government’s Public Safety Infrastructure Fund and Monash Council.
