Territory based PTM Homes have been awarded the contract to construct a new shade structure in the Darwin CBD.

The $2.7 million project will create an arching pergola will over a section of Cavenagh Street.

It'll be made using stringybark timber and a number of vines to create shade and provide cooling to the street.

Construction of the project will begin this month and is expected to take 21 weeks.

Additional shade structures, new trees, plants and a green wall are also a part of the wider project to cool Cavenagh Street.
