Streetscape improvements in Union Street, Windsor

Union Street gardens and side path next to road

As part of Council’s commitment to improving the public realm within Chapel Street, streetscape improvements to Union Street, Windsor will be undertaken mid-2021.

The works form part of the Chapel Street Masterplan program to create more attractive, vibrant spaces and stimulate local economies.

The new streetscape improvements will create a greener, more active environment for residents and businesses to enjoy.

The wider footpaths will contribute to creating a safer and more activated environment with more opportunity for café dining and retail trade opportunities.

By adding additional street trees and beautiful garden beds, wider footpaths, new public seating and a place for more bikes with new bike hoops installed, Union Street will be a great place to visit, rest and play, and a place to engage with family and friends.
