Prince Lane

09. 797NEWS• The makeover of Prince Lane is complete. Some $800,000 was spent as part of Perth city council’s ongoing laneway revitalisation program to do up the once-tired alleyway. Six WA artists were hired to come up with designs inspired by neighbouring King Street, and new gutters, granite kerbs and lighting were installed. The PCC’s hoping it’ll attract more investment in the area (which is predicted to take off with the sinking of the Fremantle line), and pieces by local artists have proved to keep taggers away. It’s the fourth laneway to be spruced up after Wolf, Howard and Grand Lanes each received fresh coats of paint. Photos by Jeremy Dixon
