Market to Riverbank link construction underway

Construction is now underway in Bank Street and Topham Mall North, kickstarting the $14.6 million Market to Riverbank link transformation of key laneways and streets in Adelaide.

South Australian civil contractor T & J Constructions has been awarded the contract for stage one construction works in Bank Street and Topham Mall North.

Bank Street and Topham Mall North will be transformed with new lighting, paving, greening, street furniture and public art.

Upgrades to the Market to Riverbank link will continue to support the growing prominence of connected laneways, businesses and the entrepreneurs that use the city’s smaller spaces.

This will encourage more people to visit and invest in the CBD and enable new ventures to establish, creating jobs and boosting the day and night time economy.

“The transformation of key small streets between the Adelaide Central Market and the Riverbank continues the recent revitalisation of Adelaide’s laneways, which has already seen the rise of dozens of bars, restaurants and shops.” – City of Adelaide Lord Mayor, Martin Haese.

The city’s important connecting laneways and small streets are integral to the operation of the city each day, providing a significantly enhanced pedestrian route for more than 15,000 tourists and locals on a daily basis.
