Roads, Footpaths & Verges
The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is committed to the continuous maintenance and upgrade of its roads and drainage infrastructure.
The Council maintains the road network within the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, with the exception of the arterial road network which is the responsibility of the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.
Featured project - Ninth Avenue upgrade
The transformation of Ninth Avenue has delivered an attractive, accessible and safe streetscape with a host of benefits for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike.
Recognised as a valued character street, and popular cycling and walking route, Ninth Avenue, St (Joslin and St Peters), was selected as the perfect pilot project to undertake a ‘complete street’ upgrade, meeting objectives of the Council’s strategic plan, CityPlan 2030: Shaping Our Future.
A ‘complete street’ is one that is designed to enable safe access for all users, of all ages and abilities. This design approach considers the street as a whole rather than focusing on the renewal of individual assets such as footpaths, roads, kerbing and lighting.
