    Background
    During 2013 Council consulted with Little Sturt Street and Willcox Street residents regarding the implementation of contra-flow bike facilities on Little Sturt Street, street art installations and the Gilbert Street priority pedestrian (zebra) crossing. This consultation, based on the feedback received, recognised the need for further walking and public domain improvements along Willcox and Little Sturt streets. The concept plans have also taken into consideration this feedback received.

    Chatham, Little Sturt and Willcox streets form part of Council’s priority walking and cycling network including its north-south ‘walking & cycling’ and bikeways networks. By undertaking street improvements it contributes to Council’s initiatives of providing safe and accessible paths for those who walk and ride bikes in the City and North Adelaide.
    Once this link is completed it will connect future Park Lands shared use paths along South Terrace (Mirnu Wirra, Park 21 West) with North Terrace, along Willcox Street, Little Sturt Street, Chatham Street, Lowe Street/Claxton Street, Blenheim Street/Marlborough Street, Gray Street and Byron Place/Elizabeth Street/Clarendon Street/George Street (see map on the right).

  • Consultation Outcome

    over 3 years ago

    We sought your feedback to help us finalise street improvement concept plans for Chatham, Little Sturt and Willcox streets.


    Consultation on the street improvements in Chatham Street, Little Sturt Street and Willcox Street has closed and all responses have been reviewed. Concepts have been updated in response to feedback received, which was primarily focused on the impact to on-street parking. The results of the consultation are summarised in the Consultation Summary Report, which will be presented to Council in late April 2016 along with the updated concept designs.

    The revised proposals

    The revised proposal for Chatham Street, Little Sturt Street and Willcox Street now includes:

    • Chatham Street: retaining the existing footpath adjacent the Grey Ward Children’s Centre but installing pavers in the parking area to assist with calming traffic, kerb extensions with new pedestrian ramps at intersections with Wright Street and Sturt Street, bike contra-flow facilities, and a central pedestrian refuge in Sturt Street – requiring removal of 2 parking spaces in Wright Street.
    • Little Sturt Street: planting 6 street trees on the eastern side of the street – requiring removal of 1 parking space (the 5 residential permit parking spaces on the east side of the street will be retained).
    • Willcox Street: widening a section of the footpath between Vinrace Street and Red Lane including new kerb ramps, and removing and replanting 2 street trees on the western side of the street.
    Project timing

    Little Sturt Street: funding has become available this financial year for the installation of street trees in Little Sturt Street, under Council’s Residential Streets Development Program. A contract is currently being let and work is expected to begin in the next 2-3 weeks. Residents of Little Sturt Street will receive further communication prior to the work beginning.

    Chatham Street and Willcox Street (including Wright Street and Sturt Street intersections): Pending Council endorsing and funding the project as part of the 2016/17 Integrated Business Plan and budget process, detailed designs will be undertaken in mid-2016 with construction works expected to be undertaken in late 2016 / early 2017.
