The City of Melbourne is developing a draft master plan that aims to ensure City Road is a safe and welcoming place for everyone.

The draft master plan will be released for community feedback in July-August subject to approval at the July Future Melbourne Committee. During this period you will be able to get involved online through Participate Melbourne and in-person at the Boyd Community Hub.

This will be a great opportunity to tell us your thoughts on our proposed improvements to the road and public spaces, including changes to footpaths, traffic lanes, tree canopy and speed limits.

Work on a draft master plan for City Road is underway, with community feedback and detailed traffic analysis helping to inform its development.

The traffic analysis is expected to finish in early 2015. The data collected will help us better understand how the road currently functions while informing improvement options to be proposed as part of the draft master plan. The analysis is also required if any changes to the road are to be considered by VicRoads, the relevant management authority.

Given the importance of the traffic analysis in helping inform the draft plan, the next phase of community engagement will now take place in mid 2015.

Details will be well-publicised so that as many people as possible can provide feedback before the master plan is finalised later next year.

The City Road Master plan is part of a suite of projects being undertaken in Southbank. It will seek to make City Road an accessible, high quality and welcoming place while still maintaining its function as an important transport link.
