Lonsdale Street Boulevard

The vision for a renewed Lonsdale Street was to make it one of Melbourne’s great boulevards, as a green and pedestrian-friendly main street with the retail and business vibrancy of a capital city.

The project responded to community feedback received during the Revitalising Central Dandenong initiative’s Shared Vision and Master Plan consultation periods.

The transformed street acts as a gateway to central Dandenong, uniting the two halves of the city centre.

Lonsdale Street now provides the setting for a future mix of spaces to meet and socialise including cafés, restaurants, open spaces, gardens, civic spaces and community facilities.

The completed Lonsdale Street now features:

  • 251 Pin Oak trees
  • 260 carriageway, service lane and footpath lights, compared to approximately 60 before the upgrade commenced
  • Six pedestrian crossings
  • Wider footpaths and pedestrian crossings
  • A unique colonnade of 60 light poles down the centre of the street
  • Plantings in gardens lining both sides of the street
  • Granite seating creating relaxation areas
  • Short-stay car parking and more bicycle parking
  • Bicycle stands
  • Water sustainability features to minimise potable water use
  • A new plaza-style meeting area at the end of Langhorne Street
  • A premium bus stop in Langhorne Street
