Proposed e-Scooter Zone Expansion

In early 2021 we extended the trial of the e-Scooters along the Coast Park for another 12 months with the current operators.

In addition to this, we asked for your views on a proposed extension of e-Scooters into nearby side streets. This would include footpaths and roads up to Military Road, and along the Semaphore Road footpath to Glanville train station (excluding Semaphore between the Esplanade and Military Road).

Consultation has closed. Thank you for your interest and contributions to this process.

Engagement summary

Consultation on the proposal was undertaken on Have Your Say PAE from 28 May to 29 June 2021. An interactive map detailed the extents of the proposal. The proposal was promoted on social media, decals placed along the Coast Park (with a QR code linking to our this page). A ‘postcard’ was delivered to every letterbox along the Le Fevre peninsula inviting feedback on the proposal.

A total of 138 submissions were received with 44 in support of the proposal and 90 against.

Outcomes and next steps

Submissions have been collated and a report presented to Council at the December 2021 Council meeting (14/12/21).

Council decided not to proceed with the proposed expansion of the E-scooter trial zone in side streets between Military Road and the Coast Park trail.

Council decided to proceed with seeking approvals to permit the E-Scooter trial to operate along Semaphore Road between Military Road and Glanville Station. Relevant approvals will be sought from the Minister via the Department of Infrastructure and Transport.
