The City of Unley has collaborated with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), to develop a Concept Design for upgrades to a section of the Mike Turtur Bikeway.

The section - between Musgrave Street and King William Road, along the southern side of the tram corridor - is an important local connection between Goodwood and Wayville and provides direct access to Tram Stop 2 – Wayville.

Have Your Say

DPTI and Council invite you to view the Concept Design, read more about the proposal and leave your feedback by completing the online survey at Your Say Unley by no later than Monday 8 June 2020.

Proposed Upgrade

The proposed Bikeway upgrade will deliver the following key elements:

  • Wider shared-use path for pedestrians and cyclists (typically 4.0m wide)
  • New bitumen path to replace the existing aged pavers, with improved surface treatments to protect existing trees
  • Upgraded LED path lighting
  • Improved accessibility to Tram Stop 2 (Wayville) from Bendall Avenue
  • A greener corridor inclusive of new trees and low shrubs.

To accommodate the wider path, it will be necessary to remove a number of existing trees along the corridor, including some significant and regulated trees. These existing trees will be replaced with new trees and extensive low shrubs, grasses and groundcovers.

What happens next?

Thank you for taking part, your feedback will be considered in Council and DPTI’s review of the Concept Design.
