Streets for People strategy to upgrade Hart St, Semaphore

Work began yesterday on converting Hart Street, a four lane arterial road, into a much more pedestrian friendly street, using the Streets for People approach. Hart Street links Semaphore and Port Adelaide. It will be converted from two lanes in each direction to one lane, with additional landscaping and a separated bike lane.

The project will create a walkable environment, with better access to community facilities for everyone. With an enhanced look and feel of Hart Street, a healthy, friendly neighbourhood will be created. The removal of surplus traffic lanes will create an appropriate, balanced road environment for everyone.

As well as having fewer lanes to cross, pedestrians will benefit from a speed limit reduction from 60 to 50km/h, kerb extensions and median refuges.
