Wheatsheaf Road is a vital part of Glenroy's local community. It hosts a variety of vibrant and unique shops and businesses. Wheatsheaf Road is an important link connecting Glenroy Station, recently upgraded as part of the Level Crossing Removal works, and the new Glenroy Community Hub.
This project aims to improve the presentation of Wheatsheaf Road, and make it easier and safer to visit and move around.
A Draft Concept Plan was shared for community consultation in June-July 2021, and feedback received has been incorporated into the the Final Concept Plan.
Since then, we've been a bit quiet so we want to address some common questions we've been getting about the project.
Over the last few months, we have been working on developing the Final Concept Plan into a Detailed Design. We are working closely with the Department of Transport to do this. The department is responsible for the management of this section of Wheatsheaf Road.
The department has told us that there may be some delays in the approval process due to current demand, with many infrastructure projects underway across the State.
We will keep you informed with any major changes to the project timeline.
Construction is planned to commence in 2023.

Removal of problematic street trees
We plan to remove the existing Hills Weeping Fig ‘Lollipop’ street trees, and plant new canopy trees along the shopping strip. This is based on feedback from the community, traders, and arborists.
Although there will be a net loss in the total number of street trees, the new trees will improve the streetscape by:
Loss of car parking
There will be a loss of around 10 on-street car spaces. This extra space will allow us to make the following improvements:
The Wheatsheaf Road - Plumpton Avenue intersection is an important connection to the new Glenroy Community Hub.
We have heard from the community that the Plumpton Avenue intersection can feel unsafe for people walking and driving.
This intersection is managed by the Department of Transport, and is part of the arterial road network. Upgrades to this intersection are not included in the scope for the streetscape improvements.
We are working together with the department to identify opportunities and funding sources to improve the safety of the intersection and the connection to the Glenroy Hub.
We will be hosting 2 online and 2 in person project information sessions in October 2022. Go to 'Connect with us' to register and find out more.
