Swanport Road Master Plan
Swanport Road is one of four main entries in to Murray Bridge. Upgrades and enhancements are currently in progress to Adelaide Road.
The Swanport Road Master Plan identified a new landscape character for the entry and overall streetscape. The design will enhance the local character of the area and provide a landscape that is contextual and engaging. Improved pedestrian amenity as well as greater streetscape changes will provide for local residents as well as visitors to the town.
