Steampacket Stairs




Steampacket Place is a busy laneway between the Four Points Sheraton Hotel and the Edgewater Apartment Block. The lane was identified as a major new pedestrian access point from the Geelong Waterfront to the City Centre.

The main steps that lead from the laneway to Brougham Street were tired and attracted anti-social behavour due to poor design, material use and inadequate lighting. The steps were refurbished to match the new laneway and lighting was improved; working as an attractor during the day and night. Negotiations with the Hotel Manager to bring forward external doors also discouraged an area that attracted anti-social behaviour.
