Johnston Street signalised carpark entrance

We’re upgrading Johnston Street in Abbotsford near Clarke Street to improve access to the Abbotsford Convent and the Collingwood Children’s Farm.

Project update - May 2022 

We’ve completed construction works on the signalised carpark entrance from Johnston Street to Abbotsford Convent and the Collingwood Children’s Farm as part of a two-stage project which is improving safety and traffic flow in the area.

This is the final stage of works for the development of the carpark entrance which will be opened once the Abbotsford Convent upgrades its carpark. Until then, the entrance to Abbotsford Convent and the Collingwood Children’s Farm will remain unchanged.

Project background

The Victorian Government is building a signalised carpark entrance from Johnston Street to Abbotsford Convent and the Collingwood Children’s Farm as part of a two-stage project which is improving safety and traffic flow in the area. 

The first stage was completed in 2020 and included the installation of traffic lights, pedestrian crossings and improved street lighting on Johnston Street near the corner of Clarke Street. 

Once Abbotsford Convent completes redevelopment of its carpark, this project will support businesses and the community going to and from the Abbotsford Convent and Collingwood Children’s Farm.
