Hardware Lane is one of Melbourne’s most loved laneway destinations. The City of Melbourne is upgrading the laneway to maintain its unique charm and attract more visitors to the space.

Works required include:

  • upgrading the existing road surface with bluestone pavers
  • renewing and upgrading drainage
  • improving lighting
  • increasing the number of trees
  • replacing existing trees.

In September 2018 we shared a draft concept plan and asked the community for feedback. We have now developed a detailed design and are expected to begin work on the upgrades next year, following targeted stakeholder engagement around timing of the works.
