2017 Australian Urban Design Awards: Commendation for Delivered Outcome – Small Scale

Sixth Street Revitalization Project by Jensen PLUS and The Rural City of Murray Bridge.

Jury citation

The Sixth Street Revitalization Project in Murray Bridge, South Australia is an example of public investment and local economic development acknowledging the importance of the pedestrian environment to the social, environmental and economic fabric.

The jury commends the designers for recognizing the location as an important cultural hub and pedestrian link through the town centre while also demonstrating excellence in functionality, aesthetics and viability. The use of locally sourced materials is also noted.

The project recognizes, and demonstrates, that streetscape projects are not just about roads, traffic and parking, but also about community, engagement and economic development. It is hoped that the Sixth Street Revitalization Project will provide the desired opportunities for socializing and connection among neighbours and the community, and have a far-reaching beneficial impact on the social fabric of Murray Bridge and the wider area.

Location: Murray Bridge (SA)

Client: The Rural City of Murray Bridge | Civil and stormwater engineer: Tonkin Consulting | Project manager: Heather Barclay Consulting | Public art curator: Brecknock Consulting
