Council has completed the road closure process to create a permanent park in Moubray Street.

Moubray Street, Albert Park, between Withers Street and Bridport Street West has been closed to traffic and used as a shared community space since 2013.

In August-September this year of 2022, we checked in with the community to see how that space would be best used into the future. During the consultation period, we heard that there was strong community support to keep the space closed off from cars and retained as a park.

As a result, Council undertook the process of closing that section of the road to through traffic permanently. This was successful and the space has been upgraded into a permanent park, improving access and community use, as well as increasing greening and tree planting in the park.
