Market to Riverbank Link
A joint project by City of Adelaide and the State Government (through Renewal SA), the Market to Riverbank Link project 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. It will feature an upgrade to elements such as, new paving, lighting, trees, landscaping, street furniture and public art.
The small streets and laneways which connect the Market District through to the to the city core and Riverbank area and Adelaide Railway Station were identified as a priority for the city and a key driver for the Laneways Master Plan, with the implementation of projects within the Adelaide Riverbank, including the upgrade of Festival Plaza and Station Road.
The laneways in the Link have the potential to offer a more intimate route for pedestrians and cyclists through paved footpaths, tree canopy, public art, lighting and street furniture. These important connecting streets provide a significant daily route for city users.
By introducing ground-level activation and investment opportunities, the streets will continue to transform currently under-utilised buildings into a fine-grain tapestry of retail and dining options, interwoven with smaller scale businesses and mixed uses.
To create attractive and safe streets that are distinctive and foster movement, sustainability, greening and activation and establish a vibrant urban setting which strengthens the connection from the Adelaide Central Market to the Riverbank, contributing to the economic viability of the area and a richer city experience.
