Imagining a new boulevard for Melbourne
In 2018, the Victorian Government announced $13 million for the ‘Shrine to Sea’ project to create a boulevard connecting Domain Gardens to Port Phillip Bay along Albert and Kerferd roads. The project will improve the safety and experience for people walking and bike riding through this part of Melbourne and help bring the local history, stories and culture to life for resident and visitors.
DELWP is working in partnership with the Department of Transport, City of Port Phillip and Parks Victoria to plan and deliver this project. We will engage with residents, visitors, businesses, schools, agencies and local interest groups through the planning process to understand the different issues, needs and opportunities, recognising the changing urban character and challenges along the route.
We’ll continue to update this site as the project develops, so please visit the page to find the latest information.
If you would like to be kept up to date with Project Updates, please contact Fran Horsley, Project Manager, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning at firstname.lastname@example.org
All supporting documents for this project will be placed here.
Current phase – project initiation
Management of the project has transferred from Parks Victoria to DELWP. The project is now in the initiation phase, and actions include:
- new governance groups established
- project team being formed, with a focus on community and stakeholder engagement skills
- development of Project Updates (Shrine to Sea: Project Update No.1 Engagement Findings (PDF, 151.1 KB)) and this webpage
- collation and synthesizing of existing information, and
- completion of a feature survey of the site
Parks Victoria led an initial community engagement process between September and November 2018 to inform the project aims and scope. This work represents the views of only a small number of the community and is only one step in the engagement, with more opportunities to be created as concept and detailed planning gets underway.
