Austin Lane enhancement


Austin Lane project update - December 2019 PDF (181.0 KB)


The NT Government is working in partnership with City of Darwin to enhance the Austin Lane streetscape with the construction of two covered walkways.

When complete, this Darwin City deal project will link with further cooling initiatives in Darwin’s CBD such as the Heat Mitigation Trail on Cavenagh Street.

Construction will incorporate the installation of new tree plantings, two new covered walkways to link arcades and provide shade, while also installing seating and upgraded kerbing.

Motorists can expect a temporary change in traffic conditions and also some delays during construction along Austin lane.

Works started in July 2019 and are expected to be complete by early 2020.
