The iconic Formula 1 round (for now) was saved from demolition

The Adelaide City Council has suspended the demolition of a 1.2-kilometer permanent section of the former Formula 1 street roundabout. The roundabout should make way for more greenery in Victoria Park.

Redesign of Victoria Park

The possibility of demolishing a permanent part of the roundabout, including Senna Chicken, is part of a plan to green and redesign Victoria Park. A large number of trees should be planted. However, there was strong opposition to plans to demolish the perimeter, and a vote in the Adelaide City Council decided not to demolish the perimeter (yet). However, it was decided to plant more greenery around the perimeter.

“We all know that Formula 1 puts the Australian Grand Prix Adelaide on the world map in many ways.”, Says supporter Alexander Hyde “This is very important for the people of Adelaide and South Australia.” Some councilors have submitted a proposal to add the circle to the Adelaide Heritage List. Various procedures must be completed for this to happen.
