City of Busselton has partnered with Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia, through the Reconnect Western Australia initiative, to revitalise Hannay Lane in Dunsborough with support from Dunsborough Progress Association.

The project built upon the vibrancy created by the Djiljit Mia Community Gathering Place, which was a project spearheaded by the community.

The aim of the revitalisation was to create a pedestrian friendly laneway suitable for community gatherings.

With the addition of colourful pathways, the delineation of pedestrian and motorist passage is working well in the shared zone.

A collaboration between the City, Hannay Lane Enhancement Group and local artist Samual Allen, the urban space has been brought alive with striking colours, planters, street furniture and artwork that you can walk on!

The 12-month trial is an example of testing new and innovative ways to use the City’s streets and public spaces, in the hope that projects such as this will help lay the foundations for longer-term changes which support safe and vibrant communities.
