Queens Way retaining wall repairs

We’ve completed planting on the Queens Way Terrace and will continue to manage graffiti as part of our routine maintenance program.   

Planting

We have completed the planting of 800 non-native plants along the Queens Way terrace. The terrace planting includes medium shrubs, plants and climbers.

The medium shrubs include:

  • Japanese Jasmine (yellow flower)
  • Plumbago (bule)
  • Indian Hawthorn (white)
  • Viburnum (pale pink).

The mid-level plants include:

  • Aloes
  • Bird of Paradise
  • Fortnight Lily. 

The draping plants include:

  • Pink Jasmine
  • Dusky Coral Pea
  • Gum Vine (pale yellow).

Once established, the terrace will feature a year-round flowering display in a three-level design.

Native plant species are unsuitable for this site because of the significant risk of natives outgrowing the relatively shallow depth of the terrace.

Graffiti management

We understand and share the community’s concern and frustration about the appearance of graffiti on the retaining walls on Queens Way.

We will continue to manage graffiti on the retaining walls as part of our routine maintenance program. 

While our crews regularly clean graffiti from roadsides, their priority is safety and attending to issues which have the greatest impact on public safety. As such, treatment of graffiti that reduces sign legibility or creates a significant driver distraction is given highest priority and is treated urgently whilst graffiti that is considered offensive is treated as soon as possible. Other graffiti is prioritised for removal depending on its size and location on the road network.
