You're invited to provide your input into beautification and safety improvement works for Queen Street, Warragul.

The Queen Street Streetscape Project is the 9th and final stage of the Warragul CBD Streetscape Project jointly funded by Council and Developer contributions.

Council is legislatively committed to delivering the works in line with the Developer Contributions Plan (DCP) DCP-01 and sets out to improve the pedestrian amenity and accessibility of Queen Street, renew the public toilet block in the Queen Street Park as well as make improvements to on road medians, pedestrian refuges and line marking between Smith Street and Gladstone Streets on the North side and between Smith Street and Normanby Place on the South. (Click here for more information about Development Contribution Plans.)

We are currently seeking community input and feedback on the proposed concept design prior to proceeding with detailed design and construction in early 2022.

Queen Street Concept Design Objectives

Based on previous streetscape stages and community feedback, the Queen Street Streetscape works aim to achieve the below objectives: 

  • Retention of existing parking bays;
  • Re-establishment and extension of significant tree avenue along the south side of Queen Street;
  • Installation of a centre median between Smith Street and Mason Street to provide traffic calming, and an opportunity for a mid-block pedestrian crossing;
  • New line-marking, including bike lanes, median and turning lanes; and
  • Retention of afterhours taxi rank at the existing Queen Street bus stop.
  • Renewal and relocation of the Public amenities block to adjacent the existing bus stop to improve passive surveillance and safety.
  • Provide for improved pedestrian and disability accessibility by:
    • Raising the kerb along the south side of Queen Street to address existing footpath crossfall issues. This would include reverse falling drainage to the rear of the carparks and enable widening of the shared pathway.
    • Providing a widened pathway from the TAFE to the existing Normanby Place shared pathway; and
    • Implementing kerb outstands and refuge islands at the Queen Street and Gladstone Street intersection to enhance pedestrian and vehicle safety.
