What can be changed?

All requests for minor design and parking changes will be considered and evaluated on their merits.

What effect will there be on parking?

There will be no changes to the number of car parking spaces, although some spaces will be shifted/reconfigured in Blenheim Street, with minor changes to parking control times to ensure consistency in the street – refer project plans. Three motorcycle parking spaces will be removed in Blenheim Street and five new motorcycle spaces installed in Gouger Street. Comments on suggested improvements are welcomed. There will be no changes to parking in Lowe Street. 

What is contra-flow bike riding?

Contra-flow bike riding is when people riding bikes are legally permitted to travel in both directions along one-way streets. Streets that are upgraded to permit contra-flow bike riding include infrastructure to improve safety and awareness for both people riding bikes and driving.

Where has contra-flow bike riding been already implemented?

Contra-flow bike riding has been successfully implemented in various streets in Adelaide, including: 
•Charlotte Street and Castle Street as part of the Frome Bikeway, between South Terrace and Halifax Street (installed in 2014),
•Little Sturt Street, between Gilbert Street and Sturt Street (installed in 2014)
•Owen, Russell and Compton streets, between South Terrace and Gouger Street (installed in 2015).
•Chatham Street (installed in 2017)
The contra-flow bike facilities installed in Charlotte Street, Castle Street and Little Sturt Street have had a detailed evaluation study undertaken to report on the perceptions of residents, cyclists and pedestrians as to the impacts of these facilities. The studies can be found on the City of Adelaide’s website
