Greening the CBD: Barneson Boulevard and Tiger Brennan Drive Stage 3 public consultation on landscaping and public space enhancement

Consultation has concluded and results are being considered

The Barneson Boulevard and Tiger Brennan Drive Stage 3 project is an iconic new entry into the City of Darwin that will provide for the future growth of our capital city with the delivery of a shaded tropical boulevard to its centre.

Barneson Boulevard is a jointly funded project by the Australian and Northern Territory governments and the City of Darwin.

The Barneson Boulevard link will reduce commuting times by bringing traffic to the centre of the CBD, and dispersing traffic more equally throughout the CBD. It will also create a better link for cyclists, add to the CBD’s green footprint with a shaded boulevard, and open up the city's eastern fringe to activation.

Creating and growing a shaded boulevard is essential to this project and will create a cool streetscape with excellent pedestrian and cyclist linkages into the CBD.

There will be approximately 200 shade trees planted along the new Barneson Boulevard.

The heritage value of Frog Hollow will be preserved. Enhancements to public spaces adjacent to the park, as well as pedestrian and cyclist access to the area, will open up the space to be enjoyed by many more Territorians and visitors.

We want to create an iconic entry way that Territorians can be proud of and visitors can enjoy. We are looking for feedback about the kind of greenery people would like to see along Barneson Boulevard, and opportunities for public art.

Please have a look through our galleries, view the video and complete our survey to give us your views.
