Gawler Greenway

The Gawler Greenway is a long-term vision for a cycling route and improved access to public transport extending from the City to Gawler. The alignment typically follows the Gawler railway line.

The route is substantially completed between the Adelaide Park Lands (at the North Adelaide railway station) and Regency Road and connects to the Adelaide Railway Station via bike lanes on War Memorial Drive. When completed, the Greenway will link to several key cycling routes include the Dry Creek Trail, Little Para River Trail, Jack Bobridge Track, Stuart O Grady Bikeway and a new path to be constructed alongside the Northern Connector.

Works to complete the remaining sections of the Greenway are not planned at this time.

Upgrade of Park Terrace underpass, North Adelaide

Construction of wider path under Park Tce

Status: Completed (April 2015)

The underpass of Park Terrace has been upgraded, improving a key connection between North Adelaide and Bowden.

The existing underpass was opened and illuminated up to make it safer and more attractive. 

Works to the underpass were undertaken in partnership with Adelaide City Council. Upgrades to the connecting streets - War Memorial Drive (Adelaide City Council) and the Park Terrace service road (City of Charles Sturt) - are underway.
