Your feedback on proposed improvements to William Street, Beaconsfield

What we’re doing

We’re planning to plant 23 trees on William Street in 2023/24. This includes 7 cheese trees (Glochidion ferdinandi) in the roadway on William Street, between Beaconsfield and Collins streets. This will allow the trees to grow in enough soil, and away from overhead cables and narrow footpaths.

To provide space for these 7 trees, we propose to install a series of median strips of varying lengths, which will also help calm traffic.

We propose 16 trees on William Street between Collins and Reserve streets. This will also allow us to provide 8 more parking spaces, as we propose to convert the existing parking to a mix of angled and parallel parking.

Future improvement works for people walking

In 2025/26, we’re proposing to upgrade the Collins Street intersection to include:

  • a new raised pedestrian crossing east of William Street, across Collins Street 
  • 2 new continuous footpath treatments crossing William Street south and north of the intersection with Collins Street.  
Plan shows new median strips with trees planted down the length of the street between Beaconsfield Street and Collins Street as well as new landscaped areas between Collins Street and Reserve Street. A future crossing is shown at the Collins Street intersection.
