First works on Adelaide’s Festival Plaza redevelopment set to begin imminently

Posted On August 26, 2016

The SA Government has today revealed that Lendlease, a construction and development company,  has won the $21 million contract to separate vehicle and pedestrian traffic by lowering Festival Drive.

The project aims to connect pedestrians between Adelaide Railway Station and Riverbank Footbridge. Works will also be concurrently done to support the beginning of the $300 million SKYCITY Adelaide expansion.

The project is currently scheduled to start when the AFL season finishes for Adelaide based teams, as to not disrupt any end of year match day events.  Premier Jay Weatherill is excited by the project, saying that “This is an exciting milestone marking the start of work on a new landmark space in the heart of our great city”

“Again and again Adelaide is singled out as one of the most liveable cities in the world and with projects such as this redevelopment we will further cement that title”

 Along with the main works of lowering Festival Drive, initial works will begin on the construction of loading docks for the InterContinental Adelaide, SKYCITY Casino and Adelaide Festival Centre.

The redevelopments, including the Festival Plaza upgrade and the casino redevelopment are set to total upwards of $900 million. Mr Weatherill spoke of the works, stating that “These works will kick-start the transformation of a long-neglected space into a vibrant destination for all South Australians to visit, spend time in and enjoy”

The redevelopment of the Plaza will include upgrading areas available to the public, which will include art displays, water features, playgrounds and sitting areas.

The works are expected to take approximately 12 months to complete.
