Helensburgh Streetscape Masterplan - Project Update

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We spoke with the community in 2019 and 2020 to develop the Helensburgh Town Centre Plan and the Streetscape Masterplan. We've completed Stage 1 works earlier this year and we’re now planning for the Stage 2 and 3 upgrades, following community feedback earlier this year.

You can learn more about the upcoming works by reading the FAQs, looking at the plan for Stage 2 and 3 Streetscape Upgrades and the design for Walker Street Terrace.

Stage 2 works

Stage 2 will focus on improving the safety and accessibility of Walker Street. The works will build on what we’ve already completed in Parkes Street. The Stage 2 upgrades will include:

  • Flattening the road to remove the steep grades and make it easier to park vehicles and access the footpath.
  • An upgrade to the existing raised pedestrian crossing near Coles.
  • A widened footpath to improved pedestrian safety on the corner of Short and Walker Streets,
  • A new footpath along the western side of Walker Street,
  • A new raised crossing on the southern end of Walker Street,
  • A new roundabout on the Lilyvale Street intersection.

Stage 2 works are planned for early 2022, following the summer holidays.

Stage 3 works

Stage 3 will upgrade the Western Terrace and the stairs. The Western Terrace is the area on the south western corner of Walker and Parkes Streets. We’ll replace the existing ramp that connects the crossing at Coles to the shops on the western side of Walker Street. A new set of stairs will go in and we’ll provide a new accessible ramp and stairs next to the Western Terrace.

The design for Walker Street Western Terrace was revised following community feedback earlier this year.

Stage 3 works are planned for later in 2022.
