Victoria Parade, East Melbourne
Project type: Heritage Impact Statement
Victoria Parade is one of several boulevards that radiate from the city, and is recognized to be of heritage value to Melbourne. The works involved realignment of bus lanes and bicycle lanes that prioritized public transport and improved cycling and pedestrian connections, while retaining Victoria Parade’s tree lined boulevard character and minimized impacts to its historic bluestone channel and kerbing. Peter Andrew Barrett undertook a heritage assessment of the works and made recommendations to minimized physical and visual impacts.
