In September 2015, Council adopted the Windsor Siding Reserve master plan that will introduce new and improved facilities at this popular Windsor park.

Implementation of the master plan was planned in six stages with construction budgeted over several financial years.

The first stage of construction started in mid-2016 and subsequent stages have been rolled out progressively since then.  It is anticipated all stages of the master plan implementation will be completed the end of 2023.

Subsequent to the master plan adoption, community consultation has occurred to refine draft concept designs at various stages of the implementation.

Future works

Project

Stage 4 - Windsor Train Station connection

The final stage of the master plan implementation will deliver a safe and attractive connection between the reserve and the railway station, with:

  • Disability Discrimination Act 1992 compliant pathway
  • Improved sight lines to and from the reserve
  • New lighting to provide a well-lit pathway for night time commuters
  • New seating to encourage use of the area and passive surveillance
  • Landscaping

 

Please note: existing vegetation will be retained where possible.

We are currently working with Metro Trains Melbourne and the Department of Transport to finalise the design.

Construction is planned during the 2021/22 financial year and site signage will be provided to inform the public ahead of works commencing.
