A Murray Bridge fast food restaurant is about to get a revamp.
The owners of the local KFC restaurant plan to streamline its drive-through facilities by creating a new layout, according to an application lodged with Plan SA.
A four-bedroom 1920s home next door would be demolished to make way for the refurbishment.
Creating an additional drive-through lane, and adding 16 extra car parks, would ease traffic congestion which sometimes spilled out onto Adelaide Road and Standen Street.
The building would also get a larger dining area; new toilets; and electronic kiosks for ordering, like those across the road at McDonald’s.
The restaurant’s outdoor dining space would be removed.
“Outdoor dining has become less popular over time; and the areas have provided after-hours spaces for people to congregate, and the occasional homeless person,” the architect behind the redesign said in a letter to Plan SA.
The Murray Bridge council’s development assessment panel will be responsible for deciding whether the plan goes ahead.
Members of the public have until midnight on Monday, September 5 to provide feedback.
