North Terrace Footpath Upgrade

In partnership with the State Government's City Tram Extension Project, the City of Adelaide (CoA) has allocated $4.5 Million to upgrade sections of the footpath on the southern side of North Terrace, from king William Street to Gawler Place and from Frome Street to East Terrace.

The remaining section of footpath from Gawler Place to Frome Street was upgraded in 2008, and does not form part of this project. Some changes to the kerb will occur in this section as part of the tram infrastructure, after which the pavement will be returned to its current condition.

Construction activity will follow the completion of the major tram works to avoid any damage to new paving or trees.

For further information please refer to the attached letter to the VC which includes contact information and artists impressions for the upgrade.
