Consultation Outcome

over 4 years ago

Public consultation on Kangatilla (Park 4) and Wita Wirra (Park 18), Pityarilla (Park 19) and Kurangga (Park 20) shared use walking and cycling projects was undertaken from 27 February to 22 March 2015. All submissions have been reviewed and are summarised in the Consultation Summary Reports.

The Consultation Summary Reports can be downloaded using the below links: In summary:
  • 24 people responded to the Kangatilla (Park 4) shared use path consultation, with 20 respondents (83%) supporting the project.
  • 25 people responded to the Wita Wirra (Park 18), Pityarilla (Park 19) and Kurangga (Park 20) shared use path consultation, with 23 respondents (92%) supporting the project, including support from South West City Residents Association, City South Association, Hutt Street Precinct Association and Adelaide Harriers Athletics Club Inc.
  • Both consultations also sought feedback on the proposed tree and vegetation removal/pruning. The general feedback was that where tree removal and pruning is justified it is supported by the community.

The feedback received assisted in determining that no further design changes to the Shared Use Path designs were required.

A Report was presented to Council on the 12 May 2015 seeking endorsement to construct the shared use paths. Council endorsed the construction of the projects, subject to the removal of the pedestrian connection and kerb ramps linking from Kangatilla (Park 4) shared use path to Margaret Street north. This was due to Council Member concerns that the inclusion of the pedestrian connection would result in an increase in activity along Margaret Street and that the additional infrastructure was not necessary. The Council Report, including Meeting Minutes can be viewed on Council's Website.

Construction is expected to commence in June on Park 18, 19 and 20, and in mid-late 2015 for Park 4, all affected stakeholders will be informed prior to construction works commencing.
