This project seeks to construct a missing pathway link and upgrade the existing road and streetscape to improve the connectivity, safety and function of the pedestrian and cyclist network.

Section 5.8 of the Better Places Laverton Place Guide outlines a project idea, titled 'Missing Links' which seeks to make Laverton a more walkable and bike friendly place.
