Hindmarsh Construction Pty Ltd will be commencing construction of ‘Nightingale Bowden’ on behalf of community housing provider Housing Choices and developer Nightingale Housing. The project will provide 34 high-quality residential apartments (with 75% allocated to affordable housing) and 125sqm commercial space, the building will consist of a mezzanine level for commercial area and 5 storeys of apartments with a rooftop terrace. The structure envelope is predominately precast concrete with the building designed to meet a minimum 5 Star Green Rating.

The purpose of the proposed road closures and public space occupation is to facilitate a safe construction site for both passers-by and onsite workers which will include:

  • Fencing and hoarding onsite
  • Dedicated building site access
  • Crane and concrete truck set up
  • Waste management
  • Designated space for deliveries
  • Designated thoroughfare from adjoining Renewal SA land at Lot 6005 (which will be used as builder’s compound) to construction site

We consulted with local residents, business owners and key stakeholders in July 2021 for a period of 3 weeks seeking views on the application to occupy public space at the above locations from July 2021 to July 2022.

Some of the key feedback included:

  • An alternative solution such as a gantry/pedestrian tunnel should be erected over the OHG
  • The OHG closure period is too long
  • Safety concerns with the OHG detour being shared with Heavy Vehicles

Council has continued discussions with the Applicant resulting in the following revised application which Council has now approved.

  • Closure of Second Street, Bowden (between Drayton Street and Laneway at Lot 70007)
    August 2021 to July 2022
  • Closure of Road Station Plaza (Lot 9502 between OHG and Second Street)

Revised Site Plan: https://www.yoursaycharlessturt.com.au/download_file/view/2253/1113


Heavy Vehicle Route: https://www.yoursaycharlessturt.com.au/download_file/view/2252/1113

The heave vehicle route has been amended and will now occur via Port Road, Gibson Street, Karra Tapa Laneway and Second Street, Bowden for heavy vehicles entering and exiting the site.


OHG closure and detour: https://www.yoursaycharlessturt.com.au/download_file/view/2251/1113

The OHG closure has been revised to a 8 month period from August 2021 to March 2022 (previously 12 month closure proposed). The detour in place during the closure will see pedestrians and cyclists utilize Drayton Street, Third Street and Gibson Street. During this closure period significant excavation and benching will be undertaken to facilitate the foundations and perimeter retaining wall which abuts the OHG. Significant structure works will also be undertaken including the installation of façade precast concrete wall panels (weighing 10t each), therefore requiring the OHG to be a total public exclusion zone. A gantry/pedestrian tunnel cannot be supported as an alternative to closing the OHG due to these construction works and the significant safety risks should the OHG remain open.


OHG partial reopening: https://www.yoursaycharlessturt.com.au/download_file/view/2250/1113

In April 2022 the OHG will reopen to a width of a 2m, still allowing for 2-way use by pedestrians and cyclists (at reduced speed). It is anticipated that construction will be completed in July 2022 with the OHG reopened fully.
