Brimbank City Council is encouraging members of the community to have their say on a draft plan to upgrade a section of Derrimut Street between Sydney and Adelaide streets in Albion.
Community members can provide feedback on two proposed designs, and tell us which design they prefer to improve pedestrian and cycling safety in the area.
The upgraded streetscape will improve safety and amenities for pedestrians and cyclists, reduce traffic in the area, and create a greener and quieter street for locals. The proposed upgrades include:
- Landscaped kerb extensions
- Cycling lanes
- Pocket park at Lawson St and Derrimut St intersection
- Raised zebra crossings and improved traffic flow
Derrimut Street is an important local connection for pedestrians and cyclists travelling from Albion to Albion train station, and is part of the Albion Neighbourhood Plan and the Brimbank Cycling and Walking Strategy.

Feedback must be provided by Friday 11 February 2022.
