Austin Lane enhancement
The NT Government, in partnership with the City of Darwin, completed works to enhance the Austin Lane streetscape with the construction of:
- two covered walkways
- tree plantings
- upgraded seating.
A new Activity Node along Austin Lane from Edmunds Street to Knuckey Street including Spain Place has also now been completed.
The Activity Node is a dedicated space to support community activities such as street parties and festivals.
To create an inviting and engaging experience for people moving through the city centre, the infrastructure enhancements include:
- decorative lighting
- improved paving
- various greening options.
The Activity Node provides:
- a linkage with the recent upgrades at the other end of Austin Lane
- spaces to capture the cooling benefit of the breezes between buildings
- support to local businesses by encouraging increased pedestrian activity.
