Princes Highway intersection upgrades
Council has obtained federal government funding towards upgrading eight intersections along Princes Highway, including Glismann Road and O’ Neil Road. This funding will supplement Council funds to ensure the delivery of these intersection upgrades over the coming years. Council is engaging with consultants to progress the functional design of these intersections and then detailed designs. Once detailed designs are complete, council will then be at a stage to tender the works for construction.

Playground Renewal – Panorama Estate
Council is working with the community on plans for a new play space on Tantallon Boulevard/Hammerwood Green, Beaconsfield. The basic and insufficient existing playground will be removed and a new play space will be installed most likely adjacent to the basketball court. Council has budgeted $65,000 for the project.
Community consultation has commenced with 4-year-old kindergarten students from the Beaconsfield Children’s Hub. The children have shared their ideas on what they would enjoy seeing at the playground. Council will return to the centre shortly to further develop these ideas.
Council is interested in hearing your thoughts about the types of play equipment you would like incorporated in this upgraded play space. Please have your say on the design of the new playground via an online survey on Council’s website. For more information contact council or visit www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay
Letters will also be sent out to nearby homes to encourage residents to take part in designing this fantastic play space.
Beaconsfield’s other older playgrounds at Kath Roberts Reserve and Jim Parkes Reserve will also be upgraded in future council budgets.
