Revitalised laneway the backdrop for future events

Published: 21 Jul 2021

Music festivals, market stalls and dining are all possibilities for council’s newly revitalised laneway in the City Centre.

Fifth Lane located between Gregory and Wood streets underwent a $765,000 makeover to improve the laneway’s condition and appearance.

The works included water main works, a new road pavement, electrical provisions and festoon lighting.

Mayor Greg Williamson said Fifth Lane was open to the public and was sure to be the envy of our capital city counterparts.

“Our laneway was dirty and smelly and now it’s a beautiful space for residents and businesses to utilise,” he said.

“It’s also home to bright creative murals that come to life using the Zappar app, which is spectacular to see.”

Rabbit Hole Night Club Manager Riley Brinkman said Fifth Lane looked fantastic and he was keen to hold events there in the future.

Mayor Greg Williamson also thanked City Centre businesses for their support and patience during the project.

“The works took longer than expected due to the discovery of aged water infrastructure underground,” he said.

“Through the support of businesses council was able to replace the underground water service.”
