Bentham Street
Signs have gone up advising that the road will be one way from 1 January

Image

Topham Mall
Plant pots have gone in and some engravings added to the concrete blocks. Seating has also been installed.

Bank Street
The street has been cleaned up and more flowers added. Looks fantastic! I just wish that green building was overhauled or demolished.

I can totally see there being a million and one vehicle / seats / planter boxes accidents on Bank Street.

That's Adelaide for you, drivers in this city are careless. Then you have the moron people of my age (18-35) who get drunk and feel the need to break off newly planted trees, trample on gardens and damage whatever they can find.

The flower boxes look like an afterthought, but the bones of the upgrade look good. I hope business in the street similarly upgrade.

Flowerboxes look like Christmas decoration maybe? Red and white is the seasons' colours after all.

I like the little engraved thingymajigs in the Topham Mall seaters. Nice touch.

Looks great. The flowers look really nice however those concrete cubical blocks look like a tripping hazard.

If the parklands are so important why dont they put it to a vote state wide? Or are they afraid the majority will back this hotel..

Great photos Norman and thanks for the update. I am a massive fan of these projects, look forward to using the laneways, especially handy for me if I take the train into the city and need to hang out with the bearded peeps @ Peel St.

I'm guessing, as well as a seating option, they are supposed to provide some kind of safeguard against a terrorist attack.

No idea what these things are supposed to be...

Oh.. they must of put up those hanging 'things' after I walked through. They look really tacky.

I was hoping for a vertical garden style theme.
