What we’re doing

We’re planning to plant new trees within the roadway in Lodge Street and at the intersection with Arundel Street.

The proposal includes: 

  • a landscaped median strip with 3 large canopy trees and new plantings, similar to the landscaped median strip we installed in Boyce Street, Glebe. 
  • extending the kerbs on both corners of the intersection of Lodge and Arundel streets. This will include 2 large canopy trees in Arundel Street and new plantings.
