Project Overview

Bunda Street is a lively thoroughfare situated in the heart and hub of Canberra City. Lined with iconic cafés, restaurants, bars and retail outlets the street divides many of the cities original buildings and new developments. As part of the ACT Governments fourth and final stage of the Civic Cycle Loop project, a bold design was selected to transform Bunda Street into a shared zone for pedestrians, vehicles and cyclists.

The project aimed to improve public amenity in the street, promote sustainable methods of transport, increase commercial growth and provide a place to host community events and festivals. In late 2014 Complex was awarded the contract for the Bunda Street Shareway project. The works were performed at intersections along Bunda Street between Mort Street and Akuna Street. Construction featured; raised granite paving, corten steel deflector cells and bollards, street lighting, pavement art, heelproof strip drains, service modifications and high end lighting. The project received significant media attention and was awarded the 2016 CCF Award for Excellence in Civil Construction.
