Moonta Street Upgrade: Project Background and Information

The Moonta Street Upgrade is a construction project that will create a high-quality pedestrian environment and improved experience for shoppers, diners, and visitors.


The Upgrade is a $4 million City of Adelaide project that is jointly funded by the Government of South Australia. It is anticipated to be complete by October 2021.

Moonta Street is in the Chinatown precinct of the Adelaide Central Market District and runs between Grote and Gouger Streets. This important connecting laneway provides a significant pedestrian route and space for outdoor dining for more than 15,000 tourists and locals daily.

The Upgrade includes new local granite paving, trees and stormwater improvements and will complement the creative lighting completed in January 2020.

The construction will be managed to allow Moonta Street to continue to be a place where people shop, dine and spend time.
