A $1.2 million upgrade by Tea Tree Gully Council has made Meadowvale Reserve an even better place to walk, run or cycle.

A new accessible footbridge across Dry Creek and concrete paths now provides easier access to Modbury Hospital, Tea Tree Plaza and the O-Bahn interchange from Meadowvale Road, Modbury.

Lighting and landscaping upgrades also occurred.

“The new bridge is a great improvement, but I especially like the lighting upgrade. I use the bus interchange to go to work and come through here when it’s dark. I feel much safer with the improvements,” said Modbury resident Raghu Palisetty (pictured above with his family).

A $750,000 State Government Open Space Fund grant helped fund the upgrade, with the Council paying the remaining $450,000.

A further $900,000 in works are planned for the reserve in 2023, including creek restoration and rehabilitation work to slow water flow and prevent further erosion, plus mass plantings to stabilise creek banks.
