Some have asked how much a project like this would cost - so I pulled some numbers from a recent job that included landscaping, decorative lighting and roadworks. Depending on the scope of work, the construction cost of this proposal would be $6.9M to $9.9M for 3km - not including repairs to the retaining walls (which is already required regardless of what happens to the road). Of course a detailed cost/benefit analysis would be required to justify the business case - but good investments in public space can provide measurable positive returns.
