Reserve upgrade works complete

over 3 years ago

Works to improve the pedestrian and cycling paths, car parking and landscaping at Mullum Mullum Reserve are now complete.

The $1.5 million works to upgrade the reserve were completed as part of the first stage of implementation of the Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan and included:

  • Upgrading the existing reserve car park
  • Widening the Springvale Road and Reynolds Road entrances to the reserve
  • Constructing a new roundabout that will also allow access to the future stadium
  • New pedestrian paths throughout the reserve and along Springvale Road
  • A new shared cycling and walking path to connect to the Mullum Mullum Trail
  • Extensive landscaping within the reserve
  • The construction of prototype stormwater treatment rain gardens in collaboration with Melbourne Water.

A range of utility services were also installed to service the future Mullum Mullum Stadium.

These management plan works have been implemented in advance of the stadium construction to reduce the impact to users of the reserve.

The management plan works have been funded by Council, with grants from Melbourne Water ($60,000) and the Victorian Taxi Directorate ($62,067), enabling the installation of stormwater treatment raingardens and two taxi drop off bays within the reserve

The next stage of the management plan implementation at the reserve is the installation of a new electrical substation in the coming weeks and new public lighting later this year.
