In mid-2019, construction will commence to transform the King Street pedestrian zone into a permanent people-friendly space known as King’s Walk.

These works are the third and final stage of the Greville/Porter/King Public Realm Improvement project that has previously improved the streetscapes of Greville and Porter streets.

Currently set up as a temporary pedestrian zone, King’s Walk will be transformed with:

  • heritage inspired cobbled pavements,
  • stylised lighting incorporating public art,
  • new street furniture, and
  • planter boxes teeming with greenery.

Grant funding of $500,000, secured under the Federal Government’s Department of Home Affairs Safer Communities Fund – Infrastructure Grants, will contribute to the cost of these works.

The new space is designed to create a local destination, where people can come to enjoy the environment and engage with surrounding retail, food and trade businesses.
