Transform Kingston

The Kingborough Council is transforming Kingston into the economic and cultural heart of Kingborough.

Following extensive consultation, the Kingston Place Strategy was developed in partnership with local businesses and the community, and adopted by Council in May 2020. Feedback indicated the community overwhelmingly wanted Kingston to be a dynamic, thriving and connected place with more attractive green spaces and improved links for pedestrians and cyclists.

Starting mid-2022, the Council will begin transforming the section of Channel Highway running through central Kingston into an attractive and inviting destination.

In preparation for these upgrades, the Council is trialling a temporary roundabout at the intersection of Channel Highway and Hutchins Street.

During the trial, data will be collected on traffic flows and speeds as well as pedestrian movements, which will then inform the final configuration of the proposed upgrades.
