Construction is planned to commence from 7 January 2019 and the program is expected to be completed by December 2019
Gawler Place is one of the busiest streets in Adelaide and connects city workers, students, visitors, tourists, delivery and private vehicles and taxis to Rundle Mall, North Terrace, ANZAC Memorial Walk on Kintore Avenue, the Riverbank, car parks and public transport.
With around 25,000 people moving between Grenfell Street and North Terrace every day, the City of Adelaide has committed funding to the upgrade of Gawler Place.
This commitment recognises the important role Gawler Place plays as a link to the heart of the Rundle Mall Precinct and will ensure that it remains a destination where people shop, visit and spend time.
On completion, Gawler Place will be a vibrant, green and people-focused street and provide a high-quality retail experience.
It will feature new footpath and road surfaces, lighting, seating and spaces for socialising. Green elements such as trees, understory planting and climbers will ensure Gawler Place is an attractive and inviting place to be.
