Hampshire Road Upgrade

We’re transforming the ‘heart’ of Sunshine into an attractive, well-planned space that is easy to negotiate, through the Hampshire Road Master Plan.

Current Construction

Work is soon to begin at the Service Street intersection – between the Man lifting cow statue and Service Street, and along the south side of Service Street to Dawson Street.

This stage will include:

  • integrating the Man lifting cow statue into the new civic space
  • additional seating
  • raised pedestrian crossings
  • improving lighting and pedestrian access between Hampshire Road and Dawson Street.

Work on this stage will begin in early 2018 and is expected to be completed mid-2018.


Access to businesses will be maintained throughout business hours.

There will be some lane closures and overnight road closures to allow construction of raised pedestrian crossings.

No road closures are currently scheduled.

To ensure safety during construction, sections of footpath on the east side of Hampshire Road will be temporarily closed off.

There will be signs to help you find your way around.

Future Works

  • Upgrades to the Ballarat Road entrance, between Hertford Road and Ballarat Road, with construction to begin in mid-2018 and finish later the same year
  • Development of a Civic Green, to be built between Bennett Place and Devonshire Road in 2018/2019 and 2019/2020.

Completed works

These works build on the improvements already 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.
