The contract to supply the granite pavers has been awarded to company UrbanStone, which is committed to using local products and manufacturing has local offices here in South Australia.

The granite used on the project will be quarried locally using Adelaide Black from the Black Hill mine at Mannum and Balmoral Green from the Padthaway mine in the South East.

The manufacturing and processing of the granite into pavers, kerbing and seating will be undertaken in South Australia by well-known stone masons and local business S D Tillett Memorials Pty Ltd and will see a direct economic contribution to South Australia.

“Ensuring local businesses have a chance to participate in key projects in South Australia is an important part of the state’s economic future and will help to deliver broader economic and social objectives.”
Minister for the City of Adelaide, The Hon John Rau, MP

Bank Street and Topham Mall are part of the Market to Riverbank link, a network of small streets and laneways between the Adelaide Central Market and the Adelaide Riverbank that the Government of South Australian and City of Adelaide have committed $14.6 million to transform. The focus of the Market to Riverbank link will be to provide a key city connection, promote economic vitality and enhance each laneway’s unique character with flexible public spaces. It also aims to create destinations and a ‘sense of place’ throughout the laneways network.

“The Market to Riverbank (link) project will help build the momentum the city needs to continue to grow and encourage unique retailers and businesses to invest in Adelaide.”
Lord Mayor of Adelaide, Martin Haese

These laneways were identified as a priority for the city and a key driver for the Laneways master plan, along with the implementation of state government projects within the Adelaide Riverbank, including the Festival Plaza redevelopment and upgrades to Station Road.

With the City of Adelaide also looking into ways to improve and enhance the market district, and with its plans to redevelop the Central Market Arcade in the years ahead, upgrading this link complements these projects.
