Replanting native plants

4 August, 2021Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade


The Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade project team and students from Templestowe College recently relocated approximately 50 native plants from the Porter Street roundabout to prepared garden beds at the college.

Alec Say, Senior Project Manager helped to initiate the project. “We are continually looking for different ways to reuse materials across all of our construction projects, and this replanting is a great example of that.

This is also a fantastic illustration of the local community engaging wholeheartedly in local infrastructure, which will make Melbourne’s north a better place to live. The school students should be very proud of what they have created here and we thank all the students involved."

The Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade will improve four intersections along Fitzsimons Lane, a major thoroughfare that connects Melbourne’s northern suburbs with the city and eastern suburbs and is used by more than 60,000 vehicles every day. It will provide a significant improvement to the performance of the road during heavy traffic periods, including peak times, community events and emergency evacuations.

The new intersection will feature safe crossing points and upgraded walking and cycling paths to provide safer connections between businesses, schools and homes.
