Church and John Streets Revitalisation Project to re-activate City Centre
The construction phase of the $8 million Church and John Streets Revitalisation Project is well underway, and will transform the City of Salisbury’s City Centre.
Church and John Streets provide an important connection to the City Centre, a precinct that includes supermarkets, retail shops, eateries, entertainment venues, banking and community services.
The revitalisation will immediately brighten the City Centre and also have a positive impact well into the future.
The project will give the City Centre a new fresh look with meeting spaces, public artworks, greenery and a range of new experiences for visitors, shoppers, diners, and workers.
Existing bollards will be removed, and will be replaced with more trees and garden beds, providing greenery and a freshness to the precinct. New artworks will also be introduced into the streets.
New street furniture, including benches and bins, will also be installed, creating a consistent look, while providing high-quality amenities to support the community, traders and visitors.
Further activating the City Centre will turn the precinct into a vibrant and enjoyable place for people to visit and work – while still maintaining its strong identity.
By creating a more open and free-flowing streetscape, areas of open space can be utilised for other purposes, such as outdoor dining, public art, events and recreation activities.
During the construction phase of the Church and John Streets Revitalisation Project, works will be done in a staged approach to minimise any impacts to local businesses on either street, ensuring the City Centre is always open for business.
Local traders have been very supportive of the revitalisation and are looking forward to the completion of the project in late 2022.
The Church and John Streets Revitalisation Project was made possible with part funding from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
The project forms part of the City of Salisbury’s City Plan 2035, aligning with the Salisbury City Centre Renewal Strategy. City Plan 2035 contains the vision for Salisbury to be ‘a progressive, sustainable and connected community’.
Outside Ideas, one of Adelaide's leading commercial civil construction and landscaping companies, is tasked with delivering the project.
