The project will improve the current pavement conditions, and will make walking and riding a pleasurable experience. Some sections of the trail will be realigned to improve safety, sight lines and reduce blind corners.
The upgrade includes a 3m wide new reinforced concrete for the main trail, and 2.5m wide feeder paths. Paths follow the existing alignment for the majority of the project area, however there are sections where the new path will deviate to meet relevant building and accessibility requirements and standards.
These realignments will also reduce the number of tree removals required. New tree planting and revegetation will also be done to offset any losses. New retaining walls and fencing will also be constructed along sections of the trail.
To date works have been completed over large parts of the Darebin Creek Trail, though more works are occurring and it will be closed in sections:
While the trail sections are closed for upgrade, an extensive array of detour and trail closed signage will help guide you safely around the project area.
