South Road Planning Study

Adelaide, Australia
Project 2011 – 2013

Denton Corker Marshall led the urban design and landscape consultants as part of a multidisciplinary team on this two year study for Adelaide’s most significant inner-urban corridor.

Described by the SA Integrated Design Commissioner as ‘exemplary’, Denton Corker Marshall developed an urban design evaluation matrix based upon world’s best-practice and Infrastructure Australia’s Urban Design Protocol.

The preferred design option incorporating sections of lowered road, cut-cover tunnels and elevated structures was taken to 30 per cent level of detail – sufficient for business case submission, stakeholder engagement and reference design for subsequent stages.

The study achieved government endorsement and Federal financing shortly after completion in early 2013.
