Austin Lane enhancement

The NT Government is working in partnership with the City of Darwin to enhance the Austin Lane streetscape with the construction of:

  • two covered walkways
  • tree plantings
  • upgraded seating.

Works on these elements of the Austin Lane enhancement were completed in March 2020.

Construction of new Activity Node

Construction of new Activity Node along Austin Lane from Edmunds Street to Knuckey Street including Spain Place in the Darwin CBD has now started.

The Activity Node is a dedicated space to support community activities such as street parties and festivals.

Below are infrastructure enhancements to create an inviting and engaging experience for people moving through the city centre:

  • decorative lighting
  • improved paving
  • various greening options.

The Activity Node will:

  • provide a linkage with the recent upgrades at the other end of Austin Lane
  • create spaces to capture the cooling benefit of the breezes between buildings
  • support local businesses by encouraging increased pedestrian activity.
