New median strips, wider footpaths and more trees on Reserve Street, Beaconsfield

New median strips, wider footpaths and more trees on Reserve Street, Beaconsfield

Open

This consultation is open for contributions.

We invite your feedback on a proposal to install central median strips, create wider footpaths and plant more trees on Reserve Street, Beaconsfield between Botany Road and Queen Street.

As days of extreme heat increase, we’re looking for ways to keep our streets cool and reduce the urban heat island effect.

Under this proposal, we’ll plant brush box trees and lemon-scented myrtle that will provide shade and make the street more pleasant for residents and visitors. The image above is an example of a similar median strip. Where possible, we’ll capture rainwater from the garden beds and use it to water trees.

The design will also improve safety by reducing vehicle speeds and making it easier to cross the road at the intersections of Queen and Victoria streets. Emergency vehicles will still be able to drive around the median strip.

There are no changes to parking planned and access to all driveways will be maintained.
