Ballam Park Athletics Track Surface Renewal Works

Frankston City Council is undertaking athletics track surface renewal works at Ballam Park in Frankston in order to comply with current World Athletics Standards, and for athletics competitions to be able to continue at this location.

The athletics track is currently in poor condition with worn and cracked sections, and as a result was declared unsuitable for competition by senior athletes by Athletics Victoria. In order to comply with current World Athletics (WA) Certification, the works will include replacement of the athletics track surface.

The $1.22m Council-funded works will commence in Mid-June 2022 and expected to be completed by December 2022 weather permitting. The track will not be accessible to the community for safety reasons whilst works are underway.

The contract for the works has been awarded to Polytan Asia Pacific Limited.

For any questions or concerns related to the Ballam Park Athletics Track Renewal Works, please contact Council’s Project Manager on 1300 322 322 or email CapWorks@frankston.vic.gov.au.

Council appreciates your cooperation and patience during the delivery of these works.

Barretts Road Construction

What is Council doing?

Frankston City Council is upgrading (sealing) 1.2km of Barretts Road from Robinsons Road to (and including) no. 120 Barretts Road.

The works include:

  • road pavement construction, including asphalt surfacing
  • formalising indented parking at the Lawton Reserve entrance
  • kerb and channel construction
  • upgrading stormwater drainage
  • installing public lighting and relocating power poles where required
  • constructing new traffic calming devices (slow points)
  • removal of some trees and vegetation where required
  • installing new signage and line marking.

View the detailed design plans here: Detailed Design Plans(PDF, 13MB).
View the proposed lighting drawings here: Preliminary Public Lighting Designs(PDF, 855KB).

Please note some aspects of the drawings are still under review and may be subject to minor changes.

How will the community benefit from the works?

Conditions on Barretts Road can deteriorate rapidly, particularly during winter, due to increased traffic to Lawton Reserve and insufficient drainage to cater for storm water runoff. This challenge for residents has required frequent grading and repairs of the road, leading to high ongoing maintenance costs.

Benefits of the work include:

  • enhanced access and road safety for residents, Lawton Reserve users and local businesses
  • upgraded underground drainage system to better cater to storm events
  • local amenities by improving visibility at night and reducing mud and dust from the road

Residents can also look forward to fewer disruptions, as regular road grading will no longer be required. 

Project timing

Commencement of works is subject to Council's decision to award the contract, which will be considered at their Ordinary Meeting held on 21 November 2022.

Works are expected to commence in early January 2023 and be completed by May 2023.

However, timings may be impacted by a statewide shortage of construction materials, weather, and contractor availability.

A further update will be provided once a contractor has been appointed.

Disruption during works

Every effort is made to reduce disruptions to residents and businesses impacted by our works and provide advanced notice of any changes that may impact residents directly. However, residents should expect some noise and delays due to the nature of the works.

Works are expected to be undertaken between 7am and 4pm on weekdays. Traffic management will be in place to safely direct road users and pedestrians and allow access to properties, including Lawton Reserve.

While properties will always be accessible during construction, some delays may occur. If you have any special access requirements, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

We thank you for your understanding while we make Barretts Road safer and easier to access.

Brighton Street - Reconstruction

The Project

Frankston City Council is completing the Brighton Street Reconstruction and Traffic improvement works between Humphries Road and Baden Powell Drive, Frankston South.

Why is this project needed?

Brighton Street was included in the Sweetwater Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study in 2019 and 2020. The study identified a number of community concerns with traffic in the area, including rat running, heavy traffic volumes, excessive speed limits and pedestrian safety, due to having no footpath along Brighton Street. The traffic treatments being implemented along Brighton Street will improve safety for residents, the local community, pedestrians and road users.

Scope of works

The Scope of works includes, but not limited to:

  • Construction of a new concrete footpath on the north side along the even numbered properties of Brighton Street, between Humphries Road and Baden Powell Drive
  • Construction of exposed aggregate footpath and retaining wall along Humphries Road near Brighton Street will connect to the existing broader path network along Humphries Road
  • Convert part of Brighton Street to be one way (eastbound) for vehicle traffic between Humphries Road and Norman Avenue, to be achieved through a realignment of the kerb line and narrowing of the existing road width
  • Modify Humphries Road and Norman Avenue, where intersecting with Brighton Street, to suit the one way traffic direction
  • Modify the Hotham Street intersection to only allow a right turn into Brighton Street;
  • Install a Bus suited Flat-Top speed hump outside No.9/No.16 and No.58/No.55 Brighton Street
  • Construction of indented car parking bays on north side of Brighton Street between Norman Avenue and Baden Powell Drive
  • Installation of new underground stormwater drainage pipes, between Humphries Road and Baden Powell Drive
  • Asphalt resurfacing works between Humphries Road and Norman Avenue

This infrastructure project supports the Victorian Government’s objectives to develop markets for recovered materials and use recycled materials in products and infrastructure.

The project recycles the following materials as part of this objective:

‘Replas – Polyrok’ - Concrete with a substitute stone made from recycled soft plastics, will be used to construct pedestrian footpath, kerb and channel and indented parking bays along Brighton Street.

For more information on Polyrok, please visit https://www.replas.com.au/products/polyrok/

‘The Green Pipe’ – These 100% recycled soft plastics are used to build stormwater drainage pipes.

For more information on The Green Pipe, please visit https://www.thegreenpipe.com.au/

‘Downer Group – Reconophalt’ – The Asphalt road pavement at Brighton Street will be resurfaced using Reconophalt, made from recycled contents such as soft plastics, waste glass, crumb rubber from end of life tyres, waste toner from printer cartridges and reclaimed asphalt from end-of-life roads. For more information on Reconophalt, please visit https://www.downergroup.com/reconophalt

Project Funding

Council has allocated a budget of $710,000 excluding GST in the current 2020/21 financial year Capital Works Program.

Council received a $300,000 grant from the Victorian Government through Sustainability Victoria to incorporate recycled material as part of the road reconstruction works along Brighton Street, Frankston South. This work will help strengthen markets for recycled materials and is supported by the Victorian Government’s $380 million Recycling Victoria Action Plan to transform our recycling system and create a more prosperous Victoria.

Project Timeline

Works are to commence in February 2021, and will be undertaken between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. The works will be complete by late June 2021 (weather permitting).

How will the works impact Residents and Road Users?

The construction works likely to generate noise and dust, which will be within the EPA’s recommended guidelines. Vehicular access to properties is likely to be affected. Our Contractor aims to provide at least 24 hours’ notice in case of restricted access to your property. Detours will be in place for traffic and public Buses will be re-directed by Picnic Street.

Carrum Downs Tennis Project

Project

Carrum Downs Tennis Courts Reconstruction and Sports Light Upgrade Project

Background

Council adopted the Tennis Action Plan in 2021 which provides individual facility recommendations to ensure a sustainable balance of tennis facilities within the Municipality.

Through detailed analysis and adopted Tennis Action Plan 2021, the Carrum Downs Tennis Club Tennis Courts were considered to be in poor condition, showing significant signs of pavement failure and cracking. It was therefore recommended within the Tennis Action Plan that Courts 1 and 2 be fully reconstructed to support multi-purpose use (including both tennis and netball and upgraded works to Courts 3 and 4), to provide a safe and compliant playing surface. Sportsfield Lighting Upgrade is also included in the project scope.

The State Government’s Sport & Recreation Victoria (SRV) through the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions has contributed a grant for $250,000 towards the Carrum Downs Tennis Courts Reconstruction and Sports Light Upgrade project as part of Council’s delivery of the adopted 2021 Tennis Action Plan. Based on receipt of this funding and the designated delivery milestones, Council Officers have progressed a tender process to seek pricing for the delivery of the specified works.

Location - Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve

Fletcher Road Revitalisation

Fletcher Rd

The Fletcher Road gateway precinct is being revitalised as part of the Frankston Revitalisation Program. We are providing a welcoming entrance to the Frankston Municipal Activity Centre (FMAC) for train commuters, drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.

The program includes traffic, streetscape improvements in the precinct and projects to improve community safety and attract more people to Frankston’s city centre. 

What’s happening?

  •  Landscaping 

As part of Council’s City Centre Greening Program, significant landscape improvements have been completed at the Fletcher Road Overpass Reserve on the north and south sides of the Fletcher Road overpass, including significant landscaping and greening to enhance Frankston’s urban forest and biodiversity. 

Council and the Victorian Government jointly fund the works.

  • Roundabout upgrade

The Fletcher Road/Dandenong Road West roundabout has also been transformed with extensive new planting.

  • The Fletcher Road Underpass Integrated Public Art and Lighting Installation (Scale)

Scale, an integrated public art and lighting installation, is being installed on the Fletcher Road overpass abutments. The Victorian Government fully funds the project through the Department of Suburban Development.

The installation illustrates the epic migration of the Short-finned Eel, migrating 3,000 kilometres from Kananook Creek to the Coral Sea and acknowledges Frankston’s geographic, historical and cultural connection to waterways.

The Scale installation is due to be completed in late November.

Frankston Pier - Public Lighting

Frankston City Council is working in partnership with the Victorian Government to restore the kinetic lighting display, Sight Line, at Frankston Pier and to improve public lighting in the area. Once complete, the project will create a unique night-time experience at the iconic pier, and a safe and pleasant environment for pedestrians.  

Key elements of the state-funded project include: 

  • The installation of LED lighting on the Sight Line poles to light the semaphore flags and the pier;
  • The installation of LED lighting on the pier edge;
  • The removal of redundant lighting and poles to de-clutter the pier and restore the rhythm of the Sight Line poles.

The new specially-designed LED lighting will minimise energy consumption, minimise upward waste light and light spill onto Port Phillip Bay. Redundant lighting and poles will be replaced as we declutter the Pier.  

With this project, the night-time experience of the 220-metre long landmark will be enhanced, and Frankston Pier will be rejuvenated, drawing more visitors to our city.   

Frankston Pier

Construction 

It is anticipated that construction will start in September, and will take around four weeks to complete.  

Construction has been scheduled in Spring so as to avoid disruptions to Frankston Pier in the warmer months. Weather and tides, however, are a factor at this time of the year and will directly influence construction timelines. 

The pier will remain open to the public during construction with only brief interruptions. 

Frankston Revitalisation program 

The project is one of the big wins of the Frankston Revitalisation program

Lighting around activity centres, such as the Frankston City area and Seaford Village, seeks to support night-time experiences and cultural activities such as shopping, outdoor dining, and even festivals. It has also been used to reinforce place-making projects like Station Street Mall, and to build on the identity of the City and local area by highlighting key landmarks such as Frankston Arts Centre and Frankston Pier. Public art has also been a consistent focus for lighting projects throughout Frankston City Council. 

Background 

A focal point of Frankston Foreshore, Frankston Pier has been popular with beach goers as a great place to walk, take in the views of Port Phillip Bay and to catch a sunset.  

In 2008, the Sight Line Nautical Sculptures installation, created by Louise Lavarack, complemented the iconic pier. This interactive and engaging installation features poles with semaphore flags which together spell-out a hidden text. 

Originally designed with a kinetic lighting display, the poles were replaced in 2017 at which time the lighting element was not renewed.   

Once complete, the new lighting will make the artwork even more magical and enticing to visitors, creating an iconic and environmentally sustainable night-time landmark for Frankston City.

McClelland Reserve No 1 Soccer Pitch Reconstruction

Frankston City Council is reconstructing the the No 1 soccer pitch at McClelland Reserve in accordance with Council Sports Development Plan and Playing Surface Renewal Program. The existing pitch is constructed on an old tip site and the surface has been deteriorating over many years as the tip material continues to break down causing undulations on the pitch.

The reconstruction methodology involves removing the grass layer (25mm ) and then undertaking a rapid impact compaction (RIC) process to speed up consolidation of the tip material. Once the RIC is completed, the subgrade level will then be raised to finish subgrade level and irrigation and lay flat drainage installed. Following this the pitch will be covered with a 250mm sand layer in preparation for turfing. This methodology raises the finish surface levels compared to the current levels to ensure that we don’t break into the tip material.

The project also includes perimeter drainage, sportsfield fencing, ball stop fencing, new goals and coaches boxes.
