The revitalisation of Lonsdale Street in Dandenong returns the main street to its former position as one of the premier boulevards in Melbourne and a gateway to the East of Victoria.

The revitalisation strategy involves transforming the street from a car dominated realm to a pedestrian dominated realm with large avenue tree plantings and integrated artworks. Public transport infrastructure and links will also feature prominently.
