Kays Ave Living Lane

This project has been completed. 

The Kays Avenue East to Albermarle St laneway in Dulwich HIll is getting a makeover!

Council is working with residents to improve the laneway between Kays Avenue East and Albermarle Street in Dulwich Hill. The laneway design is currently being finalised, and will go out to tender for construction.

Construction is expected to commence in early 2015.

The laneway makeover includes:

  • Rain gardens to reduce flooding and filter stormwater so that it is clean before it flows to the river
  • New bike path linking Albermarle Street and School Parade
  • Landscaping
  • Removal of weed tress and new trees planted
  • New additional parking in Kays Avenue

After construction there will be a community planting day.

    A big thankyou to all the local residents who came out on Saturday 15 August to help plant out the new Kays Ave rain gardens.

    We installed hundreds of plants, and with all the rain recently it will be fully green in no time.

    The last of the trees have now been planted, and the kerb blisters will get their Lomandra soon - it's not quite ready to be planted out yet.
