Landscaping works set to start at Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach
08 Sep 2021
We’re getting ready to apply the green touches at the new Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach stations after they open in November this year.
As part of a major landscaping program across Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach, more than 820 trees and 85,000 shrubs, groundcovers and grasses will be planted along the rail corridor and new station precincts.
Shaped by feedback from the bayside community, the landscaping features a range of native species that will enhance the coastal look and feel of the area.
Species have also been chosen for their ability to withstand the coastal environment, including harsh sun, strong winds and salt spray.
Planting is scheduled to start in late 2021 and will continue into the new year.
We will update you with photos of the new station precincts as they spring to life.
