Proposed name for Bulleen laneway inspired by brickmaking past

29 Apr 2024
Well Governed Council Bulleen

A Bulleen laneway could feature a name inspired by the area’s rich brickmaking history during the 1900s.

The unnamed laneway will be formalised to provide addresses for two new properties, following a subdivision of land at 48 Templestowe Road, Bulleen. It runs parallel to Templestowe Road, between Robert and Helene streets.

We’re proposing to name the laneway ‘Kiln Lane’, in recognition of the area’s brickmaking past – previously home to the Bulleen Brickworks, located nearby on Templestowe Road. 

Established by Glen Iris Bricks in the 1950s, the brickworks was taken over by Boral Bricks in 1970 before closing down in the late 1900s.
