Jetty Road Glenelg Masterplan - Chapel Street Plaza and Hindmarsh Lane Upgrade

What is the project about?

Planning alone will not make Jetty Road ‘sing’. A commitment to community involvement and response will allow Jetty Road to become an even more active place of meaning and connection that contributes towards the cultural environment and economic life of Glenelg and to metropolitan Adelaide.

The Jetty Road Glenelg Masterplan was commissioned to establish a planning and design framework that will guide future works while maintaining the historical and distinctive character of the street. This includes the proposal of new interventions to enhance the street function and attractiveness as a destination.

This includes proposed upgrades to enhance the street function and attractiveness as a destination over the next 5 – 10 years, with the intention of a future proof design that will enable the Jetty Road precinct to maintain its longevity into the next 30 years.

Final Masterplan

Council endorsed the final Jetty Road Glenelg Masterplan Report at the meeting on 13 February 2018.

The Masterplan will now provide an overarching framework to deliver a staged upgrade of Jetty Road Glenelg over the next 10 years.

The final Masterplan report has provided these stages in an implementation plan with the priority project being the Chapel Street Plaza. The exact timing of the project implementation will be reliant on funding including from external State Government Funding sources.

Chapel Street Plaza and Hindmarsh Lane Upgrade

The first stage of implementation of the Jetty Road Glenelg Masterplan is the Chapel Street Plaza and Hindmarsh Lane Upgrade. The Chapel Street Plaza concept aims to create a new civic space for the local community in the heart of Jetty Road. The upgrade of Hindmarsh Lane will provide improved pedestrian connections as well as an opportunity for additional new public toilets and parent room and a Changing Places toilet for the profoundly disabled. The detailed designs for this project stage commenced in September 2018, with the concept plan stage endorsed by Council in March 2019. The detailed design stage will follow to further refine the concepts.

Next Steps

The detailed designs (70% completion milestone) has recently been reached in July 2019. These designs will now be further refined will any remaining design issues resolved with key stakeholders and agencies during August and September 2019, before completion of the design stage in October 2019.

Following completion of the Stage 1 designs, council will seek a contractor to commence construction in the first half of 2020. The construction timing will be determined once the contractor is engaged and the schedule will be developed to minimise disruption to businesses, residents, school and church activities.
