Hindley Street Footpath Extensions Trial

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We look forward to hearing what you think of the new footpath extension areas being trialled on Hindley Street!


Project Information

The purpose of the trial is to address safety and amenity issues by increasing the walkable space through selected areas of the street. The approach is to widen the footpath in some areas and alleviate ‘pinch points’ along the street.

The trial is designed to have minimal impacts on street parking. Two x ticketed parks and 2 x loading zones will be temporarily impacted (see proposed footpath extensions below).

The trial will begin in November 2021 and conclude in November 2022.

We're also keen to consider your ideas for temporary activations in the Red Robin Footpath Extension space for 2022! Any activities or events proposed would be incorporated into a City of Adelaide curated program throughout the trial year 2022.

If you are a stakeholder along the street (someone who lives, does business or owns property on the street), please click below to provide any comment you may have.


Background

Three temporary footpath extension areas have been identified in consultation with associated businesses and SAPOL. These footpath extensions will see congested outdoor dining furniture move off the footpaths into extended on-street areas. Each of these areas will be edged with planter boxes to provide safety from passing traffic and to contribute an element of on-street greening with low-level plants.

As a long time business owner on Hindley St the impact of the Red Robin footpath extension is negative.
Three ticketed Carparks have been lost, not two as promoted. This then puts pressure on the existing loading zones. As a business that relies upon daily deliveries this is a problem . Our couriers are more frustrated than ever with their inability to do their job in a timely manner.
This initiative by the council is only aimed at alleviating the congestion and pinch points for the night time trade.
Yet again the validity of the Hindley Street day time economy is being ignored.
All 6 metered car parks were inactive for three full days of trading as the parklet was being installed. At our busiest time of year we watched customers pull up outside of our shop and then drive away because they were unable to park.
We were told that the installation would occur early in the morning and not during trading hours. Parking restrictions stayed in place for 3 full days with no obvious work being done on the final day.
Last Friday afternoon a three price fully amplified band were engaged to perform from 2-3 pm.
At that time in the afternoon the street is empty. The volume of the band encouraged the Woolshed to increase their volume of their outside music.
We, in turn, shut our doors and turned our in store music off so we could engage with our customers both in person and on the telephone.
Parklets have been trialled before and failed. Why are the council doing it again?
