Consultation has concluded.


Project Update - November 2020

The City of Adelaide has engaged T&J Constructions to undertake the Bentham Street Upgrade, which is the next stage of the Market to Riverbank (M2R) link. This upgrade will transform the street with new lighting, a green avenue of trees, a flush kerb environment, and several unique art installations.

The redevelopment will support the M2R link vision of connected laneways, businesses and the entrepreneurs that use our city’s smaller spaces along the M2R link. These connecting laneways and small streets are important to how our city operates as they provide a significant pedestrian route for an estimated 15,000 people daily.


Construction Activity

Construction is currently on hold pending advice from SA Health.

During construction Bentham Street will be closed to through vehicle traffic. However, pedestrians will still be able to travel along the length of the street. Access for waste collection, deliveries, and all other necessary local access will be facilitated by T&J Constructions after consultation with impacted stakeholders.

Your patience during construction will be highly appreciated. T&J Constructions will strive to keep the disruption and nuisance to a minimum and to complete the construction in the shortest possible timeframe. Working hours will be from 7.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

We will advise our community when works are ready to begin, and will provide regular updates directly to impacted stakeholders.
