Today, a 17-kilometre walking and cycling trail has been announced by Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan.
The new path runs between Caulfield and Eastlink underneath the new “Skyrail” sections of the Cranbourne–Pakenham line that will replace nine level crossings. The path will run through a 22.5 hectare corridor, most of which will be used for green space.
New facilities in the development include sports courts, skating areas, rock-climbing areas and – as reported by the Age – even some parkour equipment, in case you feel like a chicken run, while practising gymnastics. Recreation facilities suitable for seniors are also planned.
Two new fenced dog parks will be added at Clayton and Noble Park.
More than 4000 primarily native, bird-attracting trees will be planted, many of which will be eucalypts. Hundreds of the new trees have been donated by local councils and community groups.
More than 430 new car spaces will be built across Carnegie, Hughesdale, Huntingdale, Clayton and Noble Park.
A $15 million maintenance fund will be used to complete work on the new open spaces.
Work on the new spaces will commence in 2018 following completion of the “Skyrail” project.
