Mentone community piazza

Mentone locals will soon be able to enjoy a brand new community piazza at the historical Triangle site. The piazza will become a space for community activities, a meeting place, and a place to celebrate or to unwind and relax at the end of the day.

Building works on the piazza and streetscape of Mentone Parade are on track, with construction expected to be completed mid-2019.

Hours of construction will be timed between 7am–6pm Monday to Friday, with occasional works outside of these hours and on the weekend being required to minimise road closures and/or inconvenience to the community. 

Council will work to ensure any disruption to residents and local businesses, including noise disturbances and traffic changes, are kept to a minimum during this period.

Bus services will continue to operate during the construction works, and pedestrian access is to be maintained to businesses during construction.

The building of the piazza has been a long-anticipated project for residents and local traders and we appreciate your patience. 

Please note the triangle heritage building development is a private development and not funded by Council under the Mentone Renaissance Project.


Traffic improvements


Council has been listening to community concerns regarding the changed traffic conditions in Mentone. At the Council meeting on Monday 22 July, Councillors approved the following traffic improvements:
 
- Re-open the right turn from Como Parade West into Mentone Parade

- Re-establish the T-intersection at Mentone Parade and Florence Street

- Establish a pedestrian crossing at the northern leg of Mentone Parade from the piazza to the northern side of Florence Street.

All of these changes will now be designed and go to PTV and VicRoads for approval. Council are hopeful these changes, designed to ease traffic congestion and improve safety, will go ahead in the coming months. We will continue to provide updates to the community on the timing of these works.
