Frankston Community News | Connecting Malls Project

By Jessie Stewart

A revitalised Station Street Mall

We have transformed Station Street Mall into a safe, flexible and green public space; connecting Frankston Station to Bayside and Shannon Mall.

Key features of the design include:

  • New festoon lighting to create a welcoming and safe atmosphere.
  • New CCTV cameras to compliment the City Centres existing CCTV network.
  • Increased greening via large circular planters to achieve urban forest objectives. The planting palette will reinforce connections to the Station precinct, define spaces within the mall, maintain passive surveillance view lines and strengthen local coastal identity.
  • New central timber deck and seating to support outdoor dining and small events such as busking, pop up events and small food vendors.

These improvements are also part of a broader staged improvement program for the precinct including Station Street and Clyde Mall. Further consultation on the next stage of improvements will be provided in early 2020.

Project Funding

The Station Street Mall revitalisation project is a $1.63 million investment from Council, the Victorian Government and Bayside Shopping Centre — as we work to create a user-friendly, connected and welcoming city centre for our community and traders to enjoy;

  • $1.17 million from Frankston City Council
  • $360,000 from the Victorian Government, as part of the Frankston Station Precinct Revitalisation Project
  • $100,000 from Bayside Shopping Centre

Clyde Mall and Ross Smith Avenue East Improvements

The concept for Clyde Mall and Ross Smith Avenue East forms part of a staged capital works improvement program to create welcoming and safe pedestrian connections between the Frankston Station and key destinations.

Based on initial consultation with key stakeholders a concept has been prepared for public consultation.

Key features of the concept include:

  • Safe and accessible pedestrian connections across Balmoral Street and Ross Smith Avenue East.
  • Increased user safety and comfort in the new Mall lighting and CCTV camera to compliment the City Centres existing network.
  • Enhanced user amenity and accessibility in upgraded paving, seating, bicycle hoops, recycle and waste bins consistent with the City Centre Street palette.
  • Increased tree canopy and planted areas with options for native and/or exotic trees.
  • Potential for an interpretive overlay with the integration of the Frankston Hall of Fame through paving inserts and lighting.

The improvements are also part of a broader staged improvement program for the precinct including Clyde Mall and Ross Smith Avenue East.

Further information on the timing of works, which are anticipated in 2020, will be provided following the design phase (subject to Council approval).
