What We Are Doing

Drawing people through the city by using all weather connections across laneways is key to increasing walkability.

The Laneway Series of events initiated by the NT Government has seen music, dancing and lots of activity in the Mall and Austin Lane over the past few months.

Construction of the Austin Lane pilot is expected to start later in 2018, with consultation with neighbouring businesses to occur before works begin.

Events and street art in laneways will be ongoing and will be promoted through the event calendar.
