Southern Gateway Project

Since 2021, the Southern Gateway Renewal Group, Major Roads Projects Victoria (MRPV) and I have been working on a project to create a new natural gateway into Eltham by rejuvenating the land either side of Main Rd as you approach the bridge over the Diamond Creek.  

In December 2021, I sent out a survey asking for opinions on what people would like to see as part of this project.

Since then Major Roads Projects Victoria (MRPV) and Nillumbik Shire Council have been working on ideas and a path forward for the project, all with your feedback in mind. 

Recently the Eltham Gateway Project Control Group met for the first time, I joined representatives from Council, MRPV and the Southern Gateway Renewal Group. We met the project manager who has been appointed to the project. 

Going forward there will be further consultation on options as well as opportunities for community planting.
