Join us for Pakenham's open space online workshops

Back to Newsfeed

We’re removing the level crossings at McGregor Road, Main Street and Racecourse Road by building a 2.5km rail bridge over the roads.

By raising the rail line, we're creating more than 6 MCGs worth of new open space for locals to enjoy.

We’re hosting 2 online workshops to hear from the community what they’d like to see in this new open space which will include a combination of:

  • community recreation facilities
  • walking and cycling paths
  • landscaped areas.

At each session you can:

  • share your feedback on the new open space
  • share your ideas on what you think we should include or consider in its design
  • speak with our project team.

You’re invited to join us on Wednesday 27 October and Thursday 28 October for our interactive online workshops – scroll down for session times and how to register.
