North Western Program Alliance, VIC
The Bell to Moreland Level Crossing Removal Project, delivered by the North Western Program Alliance (NWPA), transformed a divisive rail corridor in Melbourne’s inner north into a vibrant and active urban precinct, promoting community health, inclusion, resilience and a sustainable connection to nature.
The result was the creation of over two Melbourne Cricket Grounds worth of new public space, 2.5 kms of separated user paths enabling active transport, innovative landscaping to encourage biodiversity, and co-design for better place-making. At every step of the way, these design decisions were informed by community feedback and stakeholder collaboration.
The project’s sustainability outcomes have been rated amongst the highest ever by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council and Green Building Council of Australia.
NWPA is proud to have delivered a sustainable community precinct which can be enjoyed by future generations.
