Help Transform Your Junction Precinct
Council is transforming Preston/Thornbury Junction into a lively and pedestrian friendly area for the growing number of people who live in, work in and visit the area. We are redesigning the Junction Precinct to put people first and transform this historically industrial area into one that is more urban and community friendly.
We need your feedback to help shape the projects that will be delivered during the next 12 months and beyond.
Draft Concept Plans
The Draft Streetscape Improvement Plans seeks to improve the pedestrian safety and amenity of High Street and Plenty Road by:
- Creating new public spaces for the community to enjoy
- Introducing a new planted central median to High Street
- Planting over 200 new trees
- Introducing over 1000m2 of garden beds
- Providing new seats, bins, street lighting, and bike hoops.
- Celebrating the Junctions tram history, through subtle references in the design of custom made furniture and paving.

The Junction Urban Master Plan, also known as ‘JUMP’, was prepared by Darebin Council with community input to improve the attractiveness and liveability of public space in the Junction.
JUMP was endorsed by Council on 7 April 2014. The Master Plan presents a vision to transform the Junction over the next ten years into a place that is green, community focused and memorable for its street life and unique urban feel.
