Young Street improvements project, Frankston

From 2016–2017 works were carried out to create a pedestrian friendly boulevard on Young Street between Wells Street and Beach Street.

The project created a safer environment for pedestrians, improved bus services and provided better connections within the Frankston Station precinct. 

Since completion of this project, we identified some issues from previous works. We’re working to rectify these issues and deliver further improvements to enhance the community’s experience and safety within the area.

Project update - September 2019

From Sunday 06 October until late-November 2019, we’ll be working to make improvements along Young Street between Playne Street and Beach Street.

  • There may be some works on weekends and we’ll provide advance notice if this is required.
