Crawford Lane Shared Zone

Consultation has now closed and we will provide an update soon.


Crawford Lane is a local access street within the Hindmarsh precinct which connects Port Road and Manton Street. The laneway has high volumes of pedestrian activity due to the connectivity it provides to Hindmarsh Stadium and adjacent properties. Traffic volumes within the laneway are generally low (approximately 50 vehicles per day). The laneway currently has a posted speed limit of 40km/h, with vehicular access to/from Port Road restricted by bollards.

The Reimagining Crawford Lane Project seeks to improve the safety and connectivity for people using Crawford Lane, while maintaining low-speed vehicle access where it is required.

Possible design options include:

  • The conversion of the laneway to a ‘shared zone’ with posted speed limit reduced to 10km/h and drivers required to give way to pedestrians at all times.
  • Formalising parking and loading bays for nearby traders near Port Road, creating a more attractive space for new and existing businesses to thrive.
  • Creating a pedestrian plaza between Manton Street and Orsmond Street and closing this section of laneway to motor vehicle traffic.
  • Installing artwork, landscaping, lighting and other innovative design elements.

We would like to invite all local residents and business owners to consider these and other options and tell us about their vision for this important thread in the urban fabric of Hindmarsh.

How do you want to use the lane? What do you want to see?

Get involved by:

  • Coming along to a community pop up event , Friday 26 October between 4-7pm on the back lawn of Education Development Centre, cnr Orsmond Terrace and Crawford Lane.
