Gleeson Ave, Sydenham - improving safety and parking


Council will soon begin constructing new footpaths, kerbs and a driveway on the east side of Gleeson Avenue between Unwins Bridge Road and 3 Gleeson Avenue to improve access for pedestrians.

Planning for the natural environment and infrastructure, like streets and lanes, will take place concurrently so that Council can:

  • help people move about easily
  • create more attractive places for people to live
  • contribute to a healthy environment through best practice water, tree, and biodiversity management
  • coordinate works so there is less disruption

This proposal would result in the creation of three on-street time limited parking spaces.

The new footpath will be constructed this financial year, subject to final funding allocations. As part of the work, Council will:

  • replace the existing damaged concrete footpath with a new concrete footpath
  • construct new kerb and footpath between 3 Gleeson Ave and Memory Reserve
  • continue the paved footpath from 3 Gleeson Ave to the new proposed driveway
  • provide an additional parking area for council’s park maintenance vehicle
  • replace any old or damaged street signs
  • repair any damaged existing private stormwater lines leading from properties (between the front boundary and gutter) within the area of work
  • send notification prior to works commencing
