Colourful new additions to Coburg and Brunswick
13 Jul 2021
Have you seen the brightly coloured pylons underneath the elevated rail line in Coburg and Brunswick? They’re not a ‘pigment’ of your imagination – each colour represents a different zone of the open space we’re currently working on:
- Orange – welcomes you to Coburg Station. You won't miss the new station, with the north entrance featuring a Parkiteer bike cage, bike hoops and the western car park.
- Yellow – say ‘yellow’ to your active spaces! Bring the kids to the playground, take on a mate in table tennis or practice your parkour skills.
- Pink – these spaces provide a spot to rest along the pedestrian and bike paths.
- Black – here you’ll find signage pointing to some of the spaces you can visit and enjoy as you travel between Coburg and Moreland stations.
No matter where you find yourself in the open space, these coloured pylons will be there to show you the way. We’ll keep the community informed as the spaces are ready to be opened to the public.
Coburg car park and Parkiteer
Keen cyclists may have noticed the Parkiteer at Coburg Station is now open.
Fencing around the two new stations has begun to be packed away, allowing full pedestrian and cyclist access to the stations from all angles.
At Coburg Station, crews have connected the pedestrian paths linking Victoria Street, and the old gravel car park has now been replaced with an upgraded asphalted car park.
There’s enough room for 80 cars, including 6 accessible parking spaces.
Entry and exit to the car park remains at Bell Street, west of Coburg Station.
