 Presentation: Monaro Laneways Revitalisation

The Monaro Lanes Project focuses on the renewal of two key pedestrian connectors on either side of Monaro Street – the city’s high street. Part of the CBD’s Master Plan renewal, the laneways are currently uninviting, lacking basic amenity and promoting anti-social behaviour. Through historical and cultural theming, distinctive lighting and noticeable public art, the laneways will be refurbished to produce activated public assets. They will showcase Queanbeyan’s history and cultural identity whilst improving pedestrian connection, safety and promoting new commercial opportunities.
