Masons Lane upgrade

Masons Lane has been officially opened with a stylish new look. Work was undertaken to transform this important pedestrian link between Lambton Quay and The Terrace to a well-lit and appealing pathway - and the results are great to see.

The planned work included an intensive deep-clean of the laneway, installation of a living green wall and timber cladding to walls, painting, paving, lighting and drainage work. 

Along with improvements to general lighting within the lane, we introduced feature lighting to the stairwell and The Terrace entrance.

This #wellylaneway project was a strategic fit to the Central City Framework (2012), which identified Masons Lane as an area of opportunity.  An improved inner-city laneway will:

  • improve the pedestrian network and strengthen a key link between Lambton Quay and The Terrace
  • improve the quality of the environment with better quality surfaces, artwork and light
  • support existing businesses, residents and pedestrians
  • improve the safety of all users through passive surveillance.
