Toowoomba based construction company Taddio Building Group has been awarded the design and construction tender for Toowoomba Regional Council’s (TRC) newest CBD pedestrian walkway and multi-functional public space at 174 Margaret Street.
TRC Mayor Paul Antonio said construction is expected to start in the next couple of months. “I’m pleased to announce that construction on the new laneway is expected to kick off from June 2020, weather permitting,” Mayor Antonio said. “Named in recognition of our Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, the laneway will be a safe, vibrant and welcoming pedestrian connection and community meeting place for workers, shoppers and visitors to our city,” he said.
“Carnival Lane will be a convenient thoroughfare between the CBD and longer term car parking and retailers. It will provide green space, public art, equitable access for people of all abilities and weather protection. The project, which is part of Council’s Laneway Strategy for the CBD and the overarching Toowoomba City Centre Masterplan, will realise a vision to transform this area of the CBD,” Cr Antonio said.
