The City of Marion’s road network affects all residents, businesses, visitors and those who drive through the Council area to reach other destinations.
The design of our streets can have a reaching impact through providing amenity, economic development and improved community health and safety. Consequently, Council has developed a Streetscape Policy and program to revitalize its street network.
Finniss Street streetscape
Finniss Street has been identified as one of the streets Council will be improving and accordingly a plan has been developed for your consideration.
The main features of the design are:
- Indented parking bays and bus bays along both sides of the road.
- Two pedestrian refuges – one adjacent to the Finniss Street shops and the other adjacent the Catholic Church.
- A wombat crossing to facilitate safe pedestrian and cycle movements along the Sturt Linear Path.
- Landscaping, including Water Sensitive Urban Design along the road.
- New and wider footpaths.
- Modifications to the intersection of Finniss Street and George Street.

Will Finniss Street be closed and will I have access to my property?
Following construction will traffic movements be altered on Finniss Street?
