Military Road and Main Street Upgrade

Military Road and Main Street Precinct is transforming

We are transforming Military Road (North Street to South Street) and Main Street (Military Road to East Terrace) at Henley Beach, as both road assets are due for renewal, and this presents us with the opportunity to upgrade them to better suit the needs and use of the street for the next 60 years.

  • streetscape upgrade of Military Road Henley Beach, between North Street and South Street
  • streetscape upgrade of Main Street Henley Beach, between Military Road and East Terrace
  • conversion of Main Street Henley Beach, between Military Road and Seaview Road to a public plaza (future funding required)


In 2018/19, we consulted with the community about the opportunities for this area and asked you to ‘imagine’ what could be. This was followed by the development of concept plans and further community consultation.

Community engagement on the Draft Concept Plan in April 2019 received community support and raised additional suggestions for improvements.

An opportunity was presented to transform the section of Main Street between Seaview Road and Military Road into a pedestrian plaza, making it an attractive space for people, street life and human interaction with green space. At this point in time, construction of the plaza is not funded as part of the streetscape work however there are future plans to seek funding to complete the plaza redevelopment.

Feedback from the consultation is available online, see:
