The City of Greater Dandenong’s Springvale Laneway Revitalisation Project is transforming Post Office lane into a much improved pedestrian route from the Warwick Street carpark to Springvale Road’s bustling shopping precinct.
A number of improvements have been completed in Post Office Lane, including resurfacing, better drainage, an irrigation system, planter boxes, benches for seating and tables.
The project will be completed with a unique canopy to cover the full length of Post Office Lane.
Based on consultation with the community, leading Melbourne based landscape and urban design group ASPECT Studios developed laneway upgrade and canopy designs to reflect Springvale’s multicultural character and appeal, utilizing elements that symbolize vitality, prosperity and good luck.
At night, the canopy will be lighted, accentuating its colour design, and making the laneway a 24 hour attraction.

Springvale Laneway Revitalisation - Final Designs
These images depict how Post Office Lane will look like once works have been completed.
Elements are designed to create a unique experience during the day and after hours.
A key feature are the colourful lanterns which give the space a happy and textured atmosphere 24/7. At night, the lighting design will bring Post Office Lane alive and is sure to become a cherished icon that can be seen from a distance.
