The team navigated challenges associated with the existing road network, taking a strategic approach to transport planning for an established activity centre within metropolitan Melbourne.
The draft Elsternwick Structure Plan sets a long-term vision for how the Activity Centre will develop from a built form, public realm and transport perspective.
The plan will outline expected changes to land use and development, transport and parking, building and urban design, heritage and character, employment, open spaces, and infrastructure provision.
As part of the draft Structure Plan process, the Transport Study assisted with forming the basis for future transport networks and car parking within the Elsternwick Activity Centre. The study focuses on ensuring that car-based traffic is not a limiter of built form for Elsternwick and aims instead at understanding how transport will play a supporting role to ensure integrated outcomes and achieving the overall vision for the Activity Centre.
