Safe and liveable Victoria Street

Building community confidence in the Victoria Street Precinct.

Victoria Street is a vibrant dining, shopping and cultural destination.

However, the area also faces challenges around public safety, liveability and community connectedness.

We're delivering the Safe and Liveable Victoria Street Project to help reactivate public spaces in Victoria Street. 

What will this project do?

The project is being delivered through an investment by the Victorian Government’s Community Crime Prevention Program.

It brings together council, community and business to co-design a solution to generate community, social and economic benefits for the precinct. 

It blends smart lighting, recycled glass surface materials, LED safety tactiles for pedestrians, and glow-in-the dark wayfinding to reactivate public spaces and laneways.

It also showcases an innovative and interactive community art wall titled LUMI, which has been installed at The Vic Bar on the corner of Victoria and Lennox Street, Richmond.

LUMI was designed and painted by local artists from Yarra Youth Services' Graffiti Diversion Program.
