Federal Main Street Design

One of the priorities identified by the Federal Village Masterplan group was the need to upgrade the main street, Federal Drive. 

The purpose of this was to fix issues with:

  • safety
  • accessibility
  • buses
  • parking.

Through a design process, led by Council and a Landscape Architect, and in consultation with the Masterplan group, we created a Concept Plan for Federal Drive.

The designs creates a:

  • safer, pedestrian-friendly street 
  • leafy and functional centre 
  • addresses issues between cars, buses and pedestrians 
  • retains the unpolished existing feel.

The draft Concept Plan for Federal Drive was open for feedback in December 2021 and was endorsed by Council on 8 December 2022.
