Community consultation and site investigations inform a priority list of upgrades to be constructed for each suburb, which includes elements such as:

o Footpath improvements to achieve compliance with current standards and so provide people with easier routes for moving around their suburb. This could include footpath widening, removal of trip hazards and completing missing links in the footpath network.

o Road crossing improvements such as kerb ramp upgrades to comply with current standards as well as new and upgraded refuge islands.

o Bus stop improvements such as improving access to the bus shelter and providing seating.

o Open space amenity improvements such as providing more rest points, way finding signs, landscape maintenance and improved lighting.

Ainslie (a) and Weston (b) improvements

The project is currently at the tender assessment phase, with final scope to include as many of the priority improvements for construction within the budget and relative to tender price. Priority list for Ainslie is at Attachment A and Weston is at Attachment B.

Kaleen (c) and Monash (d) improvements

The community consultation for active travel improvements in Monash and Kaleen was undertaken earlier this year in March. The priority improvements for Monash and Kaleen will be made available upon completion of the preliminary sketch plans, in August 2016.
