Kepler Street upgrade

News Article Date: 
Monday, 22 February 2016

Work has started on the resurfacing of Kepler Street between Merri and Timor streets.

Along with the replacement of 4,000sqm of road paving, centre median parking will be removed with 60 degree angle parking along the kerb reinstated.

The $450,000 project will also include:

  • bluestone kerb and channel work;

  • raised pavement style treatment at each end of the street;

  • improvements to bus stops;

  • rain gardens at the southern end of the street; and,

  • the installation of tree surrounds.


“Because of its condition this section of Kepler St had been identified as requiring an upgrade,” Manager City Renewal Tanya Egan said.

“The result will be a smooth, durable road surface and we believe the reinstatement of angle parking is also, for this block, a better parking option.” 

While the work is under way the bus stops will be temporarily relocated around the corner in Timor Street and further north Kepler Street between Timor and Koroit streets.

Traffic will be managed along Kepler Street for the duration of the eight-week project.
