The green spine project is a project that plans to create a botanical walk along Malop Street between Johnstone Park and Eastern Park.
The first stage was between Moorabool and Yarra Streets.

The north side of the green spine was different. The footpath width remained the same, but more features were added to reflect the ‘botanic walk’ concept.
Work started on the North side in March, 2018. The work involved the complete reconstruction of Malop Street. Due to this, the road was closed for about three months. We got photos of the streetscape at night to provide contrast.
By mid-April, they were part-way through the reconstruction of the street. We shared photos of the road work at Working On The North Side Of The Malop Street Green Spine.
By Mid June, work on the road had nearly finished. A new art installation called Peleton had been added. By June 23, the green spine looked close to launching. We got photos from the Market Square car park to provide an alternate angle.
Fenwick Street to Gheringhap Street.
In September, 2020, I noticed markings along the north side of Malop Street.
