Our integrated Civil Engineering and Landscape Architecture teams worked together with our client, the City of Greater Dandenong, to deliver concept design for an infrastructure upgrade to Perry Road in Melbourne’s Keysborough. The design upgrade for the two kilometre stretch of road included the widening of both traffic lanes, the addition of a centre median strip to improve safety and the addition of a shared use path.
The landscape design increases the amenity for all users and seeks to protect and enhance the existing vegetation on the site. Our landscape architecture strategy proposed additional tree planting to provide further canopy cover and support Greater Dandenong’s urban forest strategy. In partnership with Council’s park team we effectively communicated the ecological, sustainable and aesthetic benefits of the strategy and highlighted the special areas for feature planting design. In partnership with our client, we were successfully able to implement this into the concept design. Through the integration of our landscape architects and civil engineers this concept tied seamlessly into the road upgrade’s civil design in addition to existing trees and plants.
Both our Landscape Architecture and Civil Engineering teams are now working on detailed design plans and look forward to seeing construction of this significant public infrastructure project commence.
Our Visual Media studio were also engaged to provide 3D visualisation services for stakeholder engagement purposes. Using footage from our Surveying team’s UAV drone flight over the site, our visual media team developed a 30 second animated video illustrating the proposed road widening of the road. The imagery is currently being used by the Council to promote the project to the community as they enter the council office.
