What tree species will be planted?

Council proposes to plant crepe myrtle trees (Lagerstroemia indica x L. fauriei ‘Natchez’). These trees are deciduous with glossy mid-green leaves that change to reddish-bronze in autumn. They exhibit white flowers in the summertime and highly attractive exfoliating bark. This particular crepe myrtle has vase-shaped to rounded-spreading canopy and a moderate growth rate up to 8 metres tall and 6 metres wide. 

How will this impact trading and access to my shop front?

Pedestrian and delivery access will be maintained throughout the construction period. Once a construction team has been appointed, Council will provide contact and construction programme details to impacted businesses and work closely with the construction team to minimise impacts to trading.

How does this project relate to the Market to Riverbank Link Project?

The Market to Riverbank Link Project (M2R) is a joint project by City of Adelaide and the State Government (through Renewal SA). It involves the upgrade of Bank Street, Leigh Street, Topham Mall, Bentham Street and Pitt Street to create an exciting and vibrant connect between the Adelaide Central Market and the Adelaide Riverbank.

Street and intersection improvements are currently being considered for Topham Mall and Bentham Street to facilitate better pedestrian and vehicle movement. The outcomes of M2R will indirectly determine whether additional footpath widening can be achieved between Topham Mall to Press and Waymouth Place to King William Street.

Are there any future plans to enhance the southern side of Waymouth Street?

During the 2017-18 financial year, Council is exploring the opportunity to provide greening by placing planter boxes and/or planting street trees on the southern side of Waymouth Street.
