Durham Street and Cambridge Terrace

Durham Street / Cambridge Terrace from Kilmore Street to Tuam Street is currently being upgraded.

The Project

Durham Street, the main southbound road corridor on the western side of the Central City, is being enhanced with landscaping and improved traffic flow. 

It will have two lanes of one-way traffic, on-street parking on the western side, and a shared path for cyclists and pedestrians on the eastern side next to the Avon River.

Trees, landscaping and rain gardens will also improve the streetscape and suit the slower speed environment of the inner core.
