Thank you to the community of West Sunshine for submitting the many wonderful patterns for the road art. We have used these to inspire the traffic calming road art along the Glengala Road shopping strip.
In July 2020, we invited the local community to submit design ideas for the new road art installation. The final road art design is inspired by patterns and drawings submitted by community members, which is adding colour, vibrancy and helping brighten up your local shopping strip.
Safety continues to remain our priority.
To ensure road safety in the area Vic Roads has authorised a temporary speed limit reduction to 20km/hr. Temporary signage is in place to help, so please be aware of the new limits. We will also be installing a raised pedestrian crossing on the east side (towards the roundabout) and speed cushions on the west side (across Simmie Street). To ensure everyone stays safe, even in bad weather, the paint utilised is skid resistant and road certified, similar to the one used for line marking.
Throughout this project we have followed all the recommendations of an independent road safety audit.
The West Sunshine 20 Minute Neighbourhood is all about ‘living locally’ — giving people the ability to meet most of their daily needs within a 20-minute walk from home, with access to safe cycling and local transport options.
This project was funded by State Government including the Department of Jobs Precincts and Regions and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
We encourage you to come along and see the colourful and fun additions to your local shopping strip.
