Carrington Road, Box Hill, VIC

Carrington Road is a busy arterial road in the suburb of Box Hill near Melbourne. The road is popular for restaurants and retail outlets. Due to the increase in pedestrian traffic, the local council decided to extend the width of the pavement, raise the road to the same level and incorporate linear drainage for the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchairs.
