Frankston Principal Pedestrian Network

The Principal Pedestrian Network Demonstration (PPND) project promotes walking as a means of transport to key destinations within a city’s activity area.

Frankston City Council and ASPECT Studios, in consultation with the local community and traders, have developed a great plan to promote walking between key destinations and enhance exploration of Frankston’s central laneways. The route has been identified to strengthen and prioritise north – south pedestrian access to retail outlets including Bayside Shopping Centre, local traders and the Frankston Transit Interchange.

To enhance community safety and eliminate waste dumping and graffiti, Gallery Lane will host a sequence of new lighting and art components. By incorporating Crime Prevention through Environmental Design principles, these works will enliven the lane and support community activation and promote a safer pedestrian route.

Park Lane and the pedestrian link will receive a full street upgrade that will create a desirable place for pedestrians and local traders. New furniture, tree planting, art and lighting components will enhance the laneways between Wells Street and Young Street.
