Jan 28 - Feb 28 2020: Field Street Streetscape Project

The City of Adelaide undertook consultation from January 28 to February 28 2020 regarding a streetscape upgrade proposal for Field Street. The proposal covered the following elements:

  • Altering the traffic to one way. Pursuant to section 32 of the South Australian Road Traffic Act 1961, the City of Adelaide gave notice that it is proposing to close Field Street, Adelaide between Gouger Street and Wright Street to all motor vehicles travelling in a northbound direction except bicycles, emergency services vehicles and City of Adelaide authorised vehicles, as per the concept plans;
  • Planting of additional tree planting and other upgrades. Pursuant to section 232 (Trees) of the Local Government Act 1999 (SA) the City of Adelaide gives notice that it is proposing to plant additional trees in Field Street as part of the streetscape upgrade.
  • As required by state legislation both proposals required public consultation before Council can approve the works proceeding.

The City of Adelaide undertook consultation from late January to late February 2020 regarding a streetscape upgrade proposal for Field Street. The proposal covered elements including altering the traffic to one way, as well as tree planting and other upgrades. We received a significant amount of feedback (329 visits to this page and 43 people providing feedback), which will now inform our design moving forward. The next steps for the project is to finalise the design by August 2020, before a decision will be made by Council as to whether to proceed with the upgrade.

August 22 - 12 September 2018: Wright Court and Field Street Streetscape Upgrades

As part of our commitment to making Adelaide a greener and more sustainable capital city, we have committed to upgrading the streetscapes of Wright Court and Field Street. The upgrades provide an opportunity to enhance the existing character of the streets through a blend of commercial, residential and retail uses.

During May -June 2018 we asked for feedback on what could be included in the streetscape upgrades. Your feedback contributed to the development of a draft concept plan and street perspectives for the proposed upgrades, which will include the installation of 17 new trees.

Drop -in session

In addition to the Your Say page we also held a drop-in session between 4pm - 7pm on 28 August 2018 at the Minor Works Building at 22 Stamford Court, Adelaide. The drop-in session was an opportunity to meet members of the project team and to provide feedback, or any further input on the concept for an upgrade to Wright Court and Field Street Streetscape.

Thank you for your feedback. Your feedback is contributing to the detailed design work, which is currently being undertaken through Council’s external design consultant.

The Wright Court component of the work was undertaken in the 2019/20 Financial Year.

The Field Street component will continue to have design investigations undertaken, for potential construction works in future Financial Years.
