Over the last month many of you have inspired us with your insights into what is required to make King William Road the most loved main street in South Australia. Thank you for that.
We now want to know, have we understood your input into Design King William.
The majority of the feedback we have received to date highlights your desire for a more beautiful, active and accessible main street. To design King William Road with more greening, spaces for people, with safer points to cross King William Road. A desire balanced with the need for on-street parking.
What I have seen inspires me. It re-affirms my own vision of how it can become the most loved main street in South Australia. Thank you.
In response, our design team has prepared three demonstrations of how these elements could be included in the street to varying degrees.
As a result, we need your help again. From Monday we are seeking your input again. This time, to evaluate these 3 designs.
In addition, we will also have three approaches to the road surface. This includes from fully paving the roadway, parking spaces and footpaths, to a bitumen roadway with pavers limited to parking spaces and the footpaths.
Each option is a different look for King William Road. They also carry different construction timelines and levels of disruption for visitors, traders and motorists.
We’re keen to understand what you consider is the best solution while maintaining the charm and character as we re-design King William Road.
From next Monday, this new material will be on display in the shop front, as well as accessible online. We will record your preferences to help inform the eventual design outcome.
My colleagues and I will then be able to make as informed a decision as is possible. Together we can make King William Road the most loved main street in South Australia.
