Military Rd & Main Street, Henley Beach

The City of Charles Sturt is developing concept plans for the section of Military Road between North Street and South Street, as well as Main Street in Henley Beach. The project aims to transform the streets from car dominated environments to places for people.

Military Road and Main Street Precinct – Plans to Upgrade, Henley Beach

This section of Military Road is identified by the City of Charles Sturt as due for rehabilitation in 2020. The road is intersected by Main Street, which links to the popular destination of Henley Square.

“Improving access, amenity and safety and for all road users while balancing the needs for parking, reducing urban heat and incorporating placemaking opportunities are the main priorities of the project,” Mayor Evans said.

“How do we make it a great place, where people love to walk, cycle, visit, stop and spend time? We want to connect with our community as we collectively decide.”

The first round of engagement in October last year asked “what do you want to see, hear, feel, do?” There was a desire for more trees, wide and accessible paths, safe crossing points and smart technology. Another idea was to convert part of Main Street into a public plaza, while still reflecting the style and heritage of Henley Beach.

We are now seeking feedback on the draft concept plan, which has been developed in response to community feedback. You can view the concepts and have your say at until 26 April 2019. You can also talk with us at our pop up event at Henley Square on Saturday 13 April between 10am and 1pm.

Although no work is currently planned on Main Street, it makes economical and practical sense to design it at the same time as Military Road. The design will help the community to imagine the possibilities and puts the Military Road design into context. We hope to use the finished design for the Main Street Precinct to attract external funding toward the construction of Main Street. There is currently no funding allocated for this project.
