About the project

The Reid Lane lighting project has improved safety for all road users by installing street lighting and bollards along Reid Lane, between Lutwyche Road and Lucas Street to restrict vehicle access. Reid Lane has turned into a pedestrian and active transport laneway to improve safety and connectivity for people in the area.

The project features are listed below.

  • Installed bollards at three locations across the entrance to Reid Lane, to prevent vehicle access.
  • Installed kerb and channel on Lutwyche Road at the entrance to Reid Lane to remove the driveway kerb.
