As part of the ngurrak barring|RidgeWalk trail, we’re planning to upgrade several pedestrian crossings and footpaths across the Dandenongs. This includes a new pedestrian crossing at the Five Ways intersection in Kalorama.

We want to develop a solution that:

  • Creates a pedestrian-friendly town for all ages and abilities
  • Supports local communities and businesses
  • Promotes walking rather than driving
  • Encourages safer speeds for drivers

We invited you to have your say on the updated design for the Five Ways intersection in August and September 2023, where you were able to provide additional feedback and tell us what mattered to you and how the designs could reflect, enhance or improve your local area.

The survey is now closed.

We will now look at the feedback and make any adjustments. Follow the page to stay up to date.

During the first round of consultation completed in late 2022, we received over 100 responses. Thankyou to everyone who took the time to give us feedback on the proposed design.

Your feedback has helped us understand what's important to you, so we made some changes to the initial design.

There were many suggestions to position the pedestrian refuge island closer to the Café / Barbers Road. We investigated this option however, as this would require significant changes to the intersection, this option was not supported by the Department of Transport and Planning.
