Regatta Avenue and Martin Street Upgrade

The Regatta Avenue and Martin Street upgrade is now complete. The upgrade provides for additional parking including mobility and motorcycle spaces, new kerb ramps and a pedestrian refuge to improve safety.

Project outcomes

Additional car parking spaces have been created along Martin Street, kerb ramps relocated, and a pedestrian refuge constructed. The riverfront pathway has also been extended along Regatta Avenue, connecting the Kerry Saxby Walkway with the Fawcett Park riverfront path. The parklands have also received some beautification works to tie it all together.

The following changed traffic conditions are now in place:

  • Upgraded section of Regatta Avenue is one-way only from the western end (turning left from Martin Street)
  • Vehicles are prohibited from the public reserve along Regatta Avenue
  • Left turn only from Fawcett Street onto Martin Avenue


The Martin Street upgrade commenced in October 2020 and was completed in late 2020. The Regatta Avenue roadworks commenced in January 2021 and were completed in March 2021.
