Investigation of Diamond Gully Road and Ireland Street Precinct, McKenzie Hill

Project summary

Council is committed to improving road conditions within the shire through continued maintenance and upgrading of the existing road network.

The Diamond Gully precinct is a high growth area in Castlemaine. The area consists of 182 hectares of future residential land and is expected to provide for the majority of new dwellings in Castlemaine.

A key requirement of the establishment of the new growth area is to ensure the delivery of appropriate infrastructure services to support the residential area. This includes roads (and intersections), footpaths and drainage.

Project aim

The aim of this investigative stage includes:
• Review and confirmation of road reserve title boundary locations along Ireland Street and Diamond Gully Road.
• Review of existing road, footpath and drainage infrastructure in both Ireland Street and on Diamond Gully Road.
• An assessment of future traffic conditions and determination of future infrastructure works that may be required.
• A review of environmental conditions within the road reserve along with potential impacts of future infrastructure works on the roadside vegetation.


Ireland St and Diamond Gully Road are identified on the map below.

Where are we now

Council is preparing a quotation request for the investigation of the environmental conditions which includes an ecological assessment within the road reserves of Ireland Street and Diamond Gully Road.

What happens next

We will be tendering the design works in the new year. As part of the design process, information from the ecological assessment will be provided to assist in avoiding and minimising damage and/or removal of existing vegetation.

If you have any enquiries, please contact the Project Manager.
