PEDESTRIAN NETWORK IN THE ADELAIDE CORE AREA

A major step in providing a pedestrian network throughout the Adelaide core area occurred when Rundle street was converted to a pedestrian mall last October. This had the effect of creating a pedestrian precinct of 14 hectares in the most highly developed part of the city. Although detailed studies aimed at converting Rundle street to a mall were only commenced in 1972 the project was the logical outcome of a series of other studies, dealing largely with transportation and parking, which began in the early 1960'S. The policies developed and the action taken as a result of the studies are described. In brief the policies have been directed towards improving the accessibility of the core area. This has resulted in a unique and extensive off street parking system which is now a fundamental component of the pedestrian precinct. The priorities for extending the pedestrian network throughout the core area have been established and are described. /TRRL/
