Churchill Road Masterplan - $4.2m Project

The much anticipated make-over of Churchill Road, the ugly duckling of the suburban road network in Adelaide, has already begun. The six month project will transform this much aligned major arterial road and designated freight route into one of Adelaide's premier transport boulevards for vehicles, and a place for people.

Council is retaining existing trees wherever possible, but some will be lost due to the provision of raised verge parking. Council has not indicated tree removal on the plans as this is dependent on further design investigations and community feedback.

Key features of the streetscape upgrade include the following:
- Retention of existing vehicle driveways to properties.
- Construction of safer visitor parking indented on paved areas on the verge, separated from fast moving traffic.
- Fully indented parking bays at key locations around shops.
- Attractive and wider paved footpaths.
- Paved locations for household waste bins on the verge.
- Attractive landscaping (ground covers and some additional tree planting).
- A 24 hour bike lane on each side of the road.
- Continuation of the painted medians, with some raised & landscaped medians in specific locations.
- Additional pedestrian refuge crossing points.
- Partially indented bus bays and improved and sheltered bus stops.
- Re-sealing of the road surface.
- Additional streetscape improvements and features at George Whittle Reserve, Parndo Yerta (Cane Reserve) and adjacent the Alexandra Street shops.

These proposals represent the most significant improvement ever undertaken to Churchill Road and will greatly add to the attractiveness of living and working in this part of our City.
