Modernising Anketell Street

Artist impressions of upgrades

The courtyard adjacent to the Hyperdome on Anketell Street is getting a fresh new look and upgrade.  

The improvements will farewell the tired looking street furniture and raised planter boxes and welcome a more spacious and inviting entry to the community square. This upgrade is designed to attract more people to use the area on a regular basis, and provide a space for community activities such as local markets.

The final design for the courtyard upgrade, as well as the concept designs for future improvements along Anketell Street between Pitman Street and Reed Street north, is available online at

Construction will be completed in mid 2017 and will be managed to enable day-to-day activities in the town centre to continue as usual.
