Egmont Street upgrade

As part of the laneways project, the upgrade to Egmont Street was designed to make this key pedestrian route safer, more attractive and more inviting – bringing more foot traffic into the lane, supporting local businesses, and creating a clear link between Ghuznee and Dixon Streets.

Asphalt repairs

On Saturday, 5 May 2018, a section of asphalt on Egmont St will be repaired.

The works 

Pot holes have appeared in a section of Egmont St so our Contractors will be resealing this section to make it a more pleasant experience to walk and drive over. 

Safety and access 

Works will start from around 8am and is estimated to be completed by early afternoon. In the event of wet weather, the back up day will be Saturday, 12 May 2018. Contractors will be on site at each end of Egmont St to help direct traffic and pedestrian flows during the asphalt works.

Planned work

The design aimed to create a safer pedestrian environment by adding more lighting and slowing vehicle movements in the lane. The surfaces were improved, the existing character enhanced, and outdoor seating and planters introduced.

Egmont Street was transformed into more than just a shortcut, by providing the public with a vibrant and greener urban environment, encouraging growth opportunities for businesses, and a sense of community for local residents.


    We recently asked artists for submissions to add a splash of creative colour and character in the form of artworks on the doors and walls along the walkway. The artists are currently in action, so head down and get a glimpse of them in action.
