Street Types

Street Types

Different streets have different functions in the city and are shaped by their use and movement options. A variety of street types in a city provide diversity in public space, change in environments, assistance with wayfinding, visual interest and enhance the experience of city life.

Grouping and defining the streets in the City of Adelaide provides a framework for a long-term vision for the city. Understanding these definitions helps to reinforce the unique character and scale of each Street Type, and guide the selection of appropriate elements and overall street design. Street definitions assist developers, council officers, design professionals and community groups to make informed design choices when planning for city projects.

The Street Types section of the Adelaide Design Manual covers the Street Types of: Boulevards, Terraces, Retail Streets, Streets, Squares, Park Lands and Small Streets and Laneways.

The Street Types guidelines should be read in conjunction with the Small Streets and Laneways Analysis and Case Studies available for download below.
