Foster Streetscape Project


The Foster Streetscape Project provides streetscape upgrades for improved parking and drainage, heavy vehicle diversion, visual features and street appeal.

The $1.4M project (including the laneway upgrades) was made possible by a $900,000 Council contribution and $500,000 State Government contribution.

The streetscape will make the environment pedestrian friendly by slowing traffic down and providing more opportunities to cross Main Street.

Weekly Update - Commencing 18 April 2017

ADA will be continuing concreting works between Bridge Street and the Dentist on the South Side and finishing the remainder of the concreting works on the North Side between Pullhams and the bus stop.

They will also start to pull out the kerb and channel and footpath from the Rhythm Café to Ando’s Bakery on the South Side of the Street.

We appreciate everyone's patience during the works however please remember to use the designated access points along the length of the works to ensure your own safety. Extra pedestrian access points will be created through the barricades as areas become safe to use.

As a courtesy to traffic controllers and for the safety of everyone involved, we ask motorists to use their indicators indicating their intentions as to where they are going.

The V/Line bus stop in Main Street near the car park rotunda has been relocated approximately 50 metres further north along Main Street towards the Library. The relocation is temporary but will be for the duration of the Streetscape Project.

Keep an eye on this webpage and Council's Facebook page for weekly updates of works to be completed and their impacts.
