Melbourne Water is replacing Shakespeare Grove main drain outlet to make it safe for the public and ensure it continues to reduce the risk of flooding to surrounding suburbs for many more years to come.
Circle of Reflection design
We worked with key stakeholders and the community to determine the preferred concept design of the Shakespeare Grove stormwater drain outlet. We:
- held workshops with key stakeholders including local businesses and community groups
- sought community feedback on concept designs through a survey available on the Melbourne Water website between January and February 2020
- undertaken an internal Melbourne Water approvals process.
Following this process, the Circle of Reflection concept is the design Melbourne Water will be progressing to the construction phase of the project.
