Dangerous level crossings on Albert and Albion Streets in Brunswick, along with six other crossings in the area, will be removed by 2027. This will improve safety, increase the frequency of train services, ease traffic congestion and create more open spaces. The project will include an elevated rail bridge and enhancements to the Upfield Bike Path, offering a safer and quicker connection for pedestrians and cyclists.

Redevelopment of the East Brunswick Village is underway, revitalising the 3.1-hectare site into one of the area’s largest and most vibrant urban communities. When complete, the lifestyle-focused village will include a restaurant and entertainment precinct with a boutique cinema, and a wellness building housing a fitness centre, medical clinic, compound pharmacy, massage, yoga, Pilates, allied services and a health spa.

The $1 billion transformation of the 6.7-hectare former Pentridge Prison in Coburg continues at pace. When complete, the complex will include more than 1500 residences across 12 buildings, a major shopping centre with 20 speciality stores and a 15-screen cinema. By 2026, it’s expected to attract 200,000 visitors annually.
