Kicking off the World Cup 2023!

Project Overview

The City of Charles Sturt has been successful in our grant funding application for the Hindmarsh Precinct Upgrade with the amount of $1,750,000 endorsed from The Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program (LGIPP).

This project includes the upgrade of street infrastructure in the Hindmarsh Precinct in preparation for the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2023 and the scheduled Hindmarsh Stadium upgrade.

The scope of the project includes;

  • Holden Street Road reconstruction and streetscape upgrade (from Manton Street to Adam Street)
  • Milner Street and Mary Street Streetscape Improvements
  • Construction of a raised intersection at the intersection of Orsmond Street and Crawford Lane
  • Construction of an upgraded footpath and landscaping improvements in the Port Road median from Chief Street to East Street
  • Streetscape upgrades of West Street and East Street
  • Public artwork at key nodes and destinations

The project will improve amenity, tree canopy coverage, landscaping, infrastructure, road safety and improve strategic connections to the precinct for all transport users, particularly for those using sustainable transport modes such as public transport (train, tram and bus users), walking and cycling.

The project will also support existing bricks and mortar businesses by providing opportunities to expand their offerings and thrive through more flexible use of public road assets and improve the arrival experience to the precinct for visitors.

What streets are included in the Precinct Upgrade?

There is currently no path between Chief Street and East Street and given these streets are key connectors to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Hindmarsh precinct, this project seeks to install a new 160m long footpath and landscaping of the surrounding car park.

The work will include:

  • New 3m wide footpath (clay pavers) southern side of the car park.
  • New pedestrian path connecting to East Street.
  • Low level planting creating a buffer between vehicles/cyclists and pedestrians.
  • New trees and planting to increase greening

Construction is scheduled to commence in August 2021.

Access to the car park will remain available throughout the construction, however we ask you to be mindful of the contractors and machinery onsite when driving through the car park.

West Street, Hindmarsh has been selected for renewal in the 21/22 Financial Year as part of the Hindmarsh Precinct Upgrade. This project aims to improve strategic connections to the precinct for all transport users, particularly for those using sustainable transport modes such public transport (train, tram and bus), walking and cycling and those attending the Hindmarsh Stadium and Entertainment precinct. This is an exciting opportunity as we await the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023.

Residents in West Street are invited to express their thoughts and suggestions for the renewal of the street. How do you currently use the street? What could be improved for walking and cycling and what could be done to improve the overall streetscape?

Take the survey

A concept plan will then be developed following our discussions with you for further consideration.

Consultation closes Monday 30 August 2021.

East Street provides a strategic connection across the Outer Harbor rail corridor for cyclists using the Outer Harbor greenway and for pedestrians seeking to access the Hindmarsh precinct. East Street has low volumes of vehicle traffic and are therefore conducive to a more pedestrian oriented street design to support non-vehicular modes of transport.

We are looking to create a pedestrian and cycling friendly environment, promote safe access to the Hindmarsh precinct and create a more attractive space for adjoining business operations to thrive.

Further consultation with East Street residents and business owners will occur soon.

Milner Street and Mary Street (along with Crawford Lane) are two key streets that provide strategic connection between public transport and local businesses on Port Road and the major event venues within the precinct.

Improving the streetscape of Milner Street involves planting new trees and improving existing landscaping to promote urban greening and amenity for pedestrians using the street.

Landscaping work and path maintenance will occur from August 2021.

Holden Street provides major access to the Hindmarsh Stadium during events and the road asset is coming to the end of its life and therefore due for a reconstruction.

Consultation is yet to commence.

Milner Street and Mary Street (along with Crawford Lane) are two key streets that provide strategic connection between public transport and local businesses on Port Road and the major event venues within the precinct.

Consultation on how we can improve the streetscape with traders and residents will occur soon.

Council recently undertook major upgrades of Crawford Lane to provide a shared street for pedestrians and vehicles. The project involved the installation of physical elements that created a road environment which restricts vehicle speeds to 10Km/h.

A shared zone in Crawford Lane has created a pedestrian friendly environment and a more attractive space for business to thrive. Crawford Lane provides a key strategic connection with Milner and Mary Street during events in the Hindmarsh Precinct. The Lane was also upgraded to facilitate pre-match/event functions and to assist in activating the broader precinct.

The scope of this project seeks to construct a raised intersection at the intersection of Orsmond Street and Crawford Lane to further improve road safety and further strengthen this pedestrian connection along Crawford Lane.

Construction is yet to be determined. More information to come.
