Carnival Lane, Toowoomba

Carnival Lane, Toowoomba

Following the knockdown of an old building in the main streets of Toowoomba in early 2020, the area was reconstructed into a boutique new lane way connecting Margaret and Annand Streets in the city centre.

The design by Struxi Design called for a mix of Prague, Zurich and Riverina Euro® Stone pavers. With works starting in May of 2020, Taddio Building Group laid approximately 250m2 of the Euro® Stone pavers while dealing with social distancing restrictions, clearing the demolished building and limited access given the location in Toowoomba’s city centre.

In the end the entire $1.6 Million project was completed by local contractors and suppliers and opened on the 4th December 2020. The project has received such a positive response it has been entered into the Regional 2021 Building Design Awards.

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.” - Paul Antonio, Toowoomba Mayor
