We’re transforming the ‘heart’ of Sunshine into an attractive, well-planned space that is easy to negotiate, through the Hampshire Road Master Plan.
We’re planning a new civic green in the heart of Sunshine’s Hampshire Road, between Bennett Place and Devonshire Road. The civic green would feature trees, lawns, and more space for community events and footpath trading.
- Upgrades between Hertford Road and Ballarat Road will begin in early 2019. Download this flyer to learn more.
- Earlier this year, Council sought feedback on plans for a new civic green on Hampshire Road, between Devonshire Road and Bennett Place. You can view the before and after concept images below:

Footpath works for Hampshire Road between the Man lifting cow statue and Service Street, and along the south side of Service Street to Dawson Street are complete.
These works build on the improvements completed along Hampshire Road, between Devonshire Road and the Sunshine train station, in 2015; and in front of the Brimbank Community and Civic Centre in 2016.
