Market to Riverbank Link Project

The Market to Riverbank link project is a $14.6 million joint investment project between the City of Adelaide and the State Government (through Renewal SA) to upgrade Bank Street, Leigh Street, Topham Mall, Bentham Street and Pitt Street.


This initiative will create an exciting and vibrant thoroughfare between the Adelaide Central Market and the Adelaide Riverbank. These important connecting streets provide a significant route for more than 15,000 locals and tourists on a daily basis. The upgrade of the small streets and laneways that connect the Market District through the city core and Adelaide Railway Station to the Riverbank is a major priority for the city.

The link will offer a more intimate route for pedestrians and cyclists to and from the Market District and the Adelaide Riverbank, including the upgrade of Festival Plaza and Station Road. It will feature upgrades that include new paving, lighting, trees, landscaping, street furniture, public art and a program of activation.

During the 'How do you like your Laneways' consultation in April 2016, you told us what was important to you regarding the future of these Laneways.

From here, we have developed designs taking into consideration the top 5 themes you shared with us:

  • Greenery, trees, grass
  • Limiting car access, pedestrian priority
  • Lighting, nice lighting
  • Public art, street art
  • Atmosphere, vibrancy, character, buzzing, lively.

UPDATE: We would like to advise that on 28 November Council approved the road use change for Bentham Street, in accordance with Section 32 of the South Australian Road Traffic Act 1961, following a high level of feedback in support of the project. The change in traffic operations is expected to be implemented on 1 January 2018.

Early works required for service investigation and service upgrade works will commence early in 2018.

Please also note that next steps include a community-wide consultation on the detailed design for Bentham Street beginning in early March.
