In 2018, the Victorian Government announced $13 million for the ‘Shrine to Sea’ project to create a boulevard connecting Domain Gardens to Port Phillip Bay along Albert and Kerferd roads. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) became the lead agency for the Shrine to Sea project in 2019. We are working closely with the City of Port Phillip, Parks Victoria and the Department of Transport.

The Shrine to Sea project will focus on creating safe, accessible and usable spaces for both locals and visitors. The boulevard will provide links and connections for people walking and bike riding through this part of Melbourne, as well as helping to celebrate local histories and stories.

Where is the project up to?

We are in the early stages of developing a masterplan, with the aim of completing the boulevard by the end of 2023.

To guide the masterplan design process we are seeking your initial input about what you currently enjoy about the Shrine to Sea area as well as suggestions on what you would like to see along a new boulevard. This is the first online consultation for the Shrine to Sea project and there will be further opportunities to share your views as the project progresses. We will ensure to close the loop with you, by summarising what you have told us, and explain how your contribution has been considered.
