A long-awaited project to beautify a central Queenstown lane is planned for early next year.

Creative Cows founders Raylene McQueen and Sarah Dagg formed the Cow Lane Street Art Project in 2017, planning to commission artists to paint pieces down one side of the rundown one-way lane.

Australian street artist Steen Jones was selected from 19 applicants for the first piece, to go on an 18m by 7m wall at the Camp St end of the lane.

A public notice has now been lodged for Cow Lane to be temporarily closed to traffic for the piece to be installed.

The notice says Cow Lane would be closed from January 21 to February 3, from 3pm to 9pm daily.

Vehicles entering the Cow Lane car park building would be directed through the Beach St entrance.

Anyone with concerns about the closure should contact Sarah Mitchell at APL Property Ltd in Queenstown before 5pm on Monday.
