This continuation of our grounds will feature space for interments and create a long-lasting and peaceful garden settings for the community in perpetuity.

Work in this space will commence in early 2023. A phased approach will likely mean the beautiful new space will be complete in 2025.

Project phases

Site preparations

The first phase of works prepared the site for future planting and construction, continuing our commitment to botanical garden settings, and will include construction of the first stage of our new monumental grave area.

It also included future planting along the fence line on McWilliam Street to form a screen.

McWilliam Street disruption during construction

To support infrastructure works at Springvale Botanical Cemetery, ACE Contractors have been retained to relocate a water meter on site, which will involve some minor disruptions to a limited number of properties on McWilliam Street, Springvale. Impacted properties have been notified.

Between 22 August – 24 August 2023, multiple excavations of the footpath and nature strip will be carried out to provide access to the existing water main.

Two excavations took place on the residential side of the road. Additional vehicle traffic was noted in the area during completion of the works.

Works took place between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Traffic management was in place to support safe movement in the area. Driveway access remained throughout.

Solid fence screening works

The shade cloth was replaced with a new colourbond fence to provide a short-term solution on the fence line to support privacy for neighbours and families. This new fence ensures access to the area and provides a solid screening for privacy.

Screening plants along the fence line will continue to grow and help preserve gentle reflection spaces and enhance community amenity of the surrounding area.
