Work has begun on McLaren Parade to transform this street into an inviting premium boulevard that connects the area.
We are creating a high-quality public space in and around the riverfront, to encourage visitors and residents alike to use and enjoy the streets and wharves of Port Adelaide. We’re building an inviting vibrant, green, pedestrian focussed environment.
McLaren Parade is being converted into a one-way street with the removal of kerbing to create a low-speed street that prioritises pedestrians and cyclists.
We are increasing streetscape greening and canopy coverage with shading and more wind protection, while adding public spaces and street furniture to encourage people to gather. To finish off the project there will be new public art created that is representative of the area.
This work is being undertaken in two stages to allow construction of the new Rydges Hotels & Resorts Rydges on the Wharf. The total estimated cost for this streetscape project is $1.85 million, with $600,000 from the State Government Open Spaces and Places Grant Program, and the rest funded by the City of PAE.
