Dandenong Creek corridor to be turned into a Living Link

28 April 2017

A project to transform the Dandenong Creek corridor into a world-class urban Living Link was launched on Friday 28th April 2017.

This Living Links project has received an allocation of $1 million through from the Victorian Government’s ‘Our Catchments, Our Communities‘ initiative.

The project will undertake a range of on-ground works to enhance and connect green spaces in a 22km corridor of the Dandenong Creek between Bayswater North and Dandenong. The works aim to enhance local flora and fauna, help threatened species and improve water quality.

Deliver will occur over the next 3-4 years involving the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA (through the Living Links program), Melbourne Water, Maroondah City Council, Knox City Council, Greater Dandenong City Council, City of Casey, Parks Victoria and local community groups.

At the launch, project partners were able view some of the planned work sites in the City of Maroondah and Knox during a 2.4km walk along the Dandenong Creek.
