Belvedere Reserve Practice Wicket Facility

Frankston City Council is upgrading the existing practice wicket facility at Belvedere Reserve in accordance with Council Sports Development Plan and meets Cricket Victoria facility standards and guidelines. The works involve the demolition of the existing facility and construction of a fully enclosed multi purpose training facility.

The upgrade is a combination of chainmesh and soft netting and provides one cricket lane for general public use and three lanes with retractable netting for club use. The facility is opened up for a variety of training drills by retracting the two retractable curtains.

The facility also includes a path network, power for a bowling machine and drinking fountain with a dog bowl and bottle filling tap.


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

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

For more information on The Green Pipe, please visit

‘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

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).

Esplanade Drainage Works

Frankston City Council is undertaking the installation of a large diameter stormwater drainage pipe within the roadway of the Esplanade between High Street and Williams Street, Frankston.

Why is the project needed?
In urban environments stormwater is conveyed from properties and roads through a series of underground pipes and pits before it reaches an open watercourse such as a stream and eventually a coastal waterbody.

Pipelines are located within roadways, reserves, or in easements when travelling through private properties.

Responsibility management of these piped networks is typically vested with Councils for smaller pipelines, and Melbourne Water for larger pipelines.

Areas that collects stormwater flows are called catchments and are determined by the lay of the land and resultant flow of water.

Frankston City Council undertakes investigations and modelling of the catchments it manages in order to identify areas of potential flooding and to prioritise drainage improvement works at these locations.

These works form part of the implementation of the Frankston South Drainage Strategy, a series of priorities works based on investigation and modelling to improve network capacity and reduce flood risk in the area.

The strategy area is bound by Frankston Flinders Road (East), Port Phillip Bay (West), Hastings Road (North), and the top of the catchment towards Humphries Road (South).

The Esplanade pipeline is in the Warringa and Williams Catchments of Frankston South. Further stages that will connect to this pipeline include works on Cliff Road, Bay Street South, Helen Street and Gweno Avenue.

These works will improve network capacity in the areas of High Street, the Esplanade, Nolan Street, Williams Street, Cliff Road, and Warringa Road, as well as nearby streets.

Scope of Works
Works will include deep excavation, pipe laying, installation of pits, and backfilling and reinstatement of the roadway.

Picture 1.jpg
Please note: This is an example image of similar scale stormwater drainage installation.

Project Timeline
Works will commence on Monday 17th January 2022 with an estimated duration of approximately 2 months.

How will the works impact Residents and Road Users?
Progressive road closures will be in place as follows:

  • High Street and the Esplanade, from east of Bay Street South to north of Nolan Street. Access to Nepean Hwy via the Folly (service road) will be closed.
  • The Esplanade from north of Nolan Street to south of Williams Street. Nolan-Esplanade intersection closed.
  • The Esplanade and Cliff Road approximately 50m either side of Williams Street. Williams-Cliff/Esplanade intersection closed. 

Due to the nature of works and deep excavations the closure of these locations to through traffic is the safest and most efficient approach to completing these works for workers and the community. 

Residents in proximity to work zones are requested to please remove any vehicles parked on the roadway by 7am each morning and ensure the roadway remains clear until the works are completed.

Access to properties within the road closure will remain at all times where possible. If access cannot be retained onsite staff will give advanced notification and liaise with impacted properties to accommodate requirements.

Concrete pits and pipes will be stored on nature strips for short periods before being installed, and some noise and minor vibration will be emitted by construction equipment and associated activities.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. Council appreciates your cooperation and patience during the delivery of these works.

Boardwalk works will commence at the end of June with an estimate duration of approximately 6 weeks, until mid-August 2022.

How will the works impact Gardens Users?
Path construction works in the western precinct will involve vehicle movements and access to some areas will be restricted for safety reasons whilst works are underway.

Several gates will be closed whilst we complete pathway works in the area. Park visitors, in particular those that travel through the park to reach the Frankston Hospital, are requested to seek an alternate route and allow for additional time whilst works are under way.

Some noise and minor vibration will be emitted by construction equipment and associated activities.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Hall Road Pavement Rehabilitation Works

Frankston City Council is scheduling major roadworks along the east and west bound lanes of Hall Road, between Frankston Dandenong Road and Rowellyn Avenue in Carrum Downs between November 2021 and March 2022.

These roadworks are funded through the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

These roadworks include full depth pavement removal and replacement with asphalt and drainage pipe renewal along sections of Hall Road. These works will restore the current degraded condition of the road pavement and surfacing along both the east and west bound carriageways of Hall Road.

The works will be carried out in stages, with the actual phasing of the works along Hall Road yet to be finalised. These works will cause disruption to traffic for certain periods, and access to properties along Hall Road may also be restricted for a number of days as the works progress.

Traffic control will be in place, to ensure the safety of workers and road users. Vehicle access to the Carrum Downs Shopping Centre will be maintained during the works.

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.
