The potential of Moorabbin Junction is largely unrealised. Council is working toward reviving the centre to achieve the agreed vision “to actively engage to bring Moorabbin to life by complementing its strong cultural role with a living population that calls it home”.
Realising that vision will be helped by major new developments that bring Moorabbin to the centre of focus. Already just 16 kilometres from Melbourne, it will soon be even easier to get to and from Moorabbin, with the Dingley Bypass set for completion in two years and $100 million of upgrades planned for the Frankston rail line. The Structure Plan also identifies opportunities for Moorabbin Junction itself that will inject new life into the undeveloped centre, ease traffic, create more jobs, open new retail spaces and put more housing closer to transport.
