Works to extend the shared path along the northern side of Railway Parade South, Chadstone will begin on Monday 14 May 2018

The works are taking place between Beatrice Avenue and Huntingdale Road and will improve accessibility and provide connectivity for people walking and cycling.

Works include:
  • Construction of a 3 metre wide shared path 
  • Kerb extensions into the road where the shared path width reduces to 2 metres to protect two significant trees 
  • Line marking works 
  • Minor asphalt patching 
  • Associated reinstatement/landscaping works. 

The works will take approximately four weeks to complete. Work hours will generally be between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday and 8am to 3pm on Saturdays (as required).  

Traffic management will be in place to detour pedestrians and vehicles away from the work area. The works are expected to occur in stages to minimise disruption. Parking restrictions will apply to the north side of Railway Parade South during construction works. 

Access will be maintained to the Jordanville Station car park during the works. 

A number of trees, including some Melia species, were removed last week to enable construction of the new shared path along the road reserve. Kerb extensions are being used to divert the path away from significant trees which are being retained.

The Waverley Rail Trail is a popular route for people walking and cycling within Monash and beyond, and over the next few years Council plans to complete the link from Holmesglen to Glen Waverley Railway Station.
