In 2019, Council launched a streetscape upgrade project to improve safety, amenity, and access along Lilydale Road, Healesville. This was in recognition of creating an area that balanced the needs of visitors to nearby businesses and community access to the area. With the upgrade now in place, we are checking in to find out how the space is working for you and if there are any tweaks or enhancements needed.

It is absolutely dreadful and an embarrassment to Healesville. It is all bitumen and concrete. Whatever happened to a landscaping plan.

Parking a real issue. Too narrow, poor visibility, and to get out you need to stop traffic on the other! Road too narrow - dangerous!

Purpose of works to improve safety. Not achieved - road is less safe than it was prior to works. Angled parks and wider road required 👍🏻
