Outside Ideas was head contractor for the redevelopment of Sixth Street in Murray Bridge in 2016, creating a new shared pedestrian and vehicular roadway through the main business district.

The scope included bulk earthworks and the demolition of the existing roadway in two stages to lessen the impact on traders and traffic, a complete stormwater system, street lighting and electrical, and building in situ concrete walls. The majority of the 25,000 labour hours on site were spent pouring concrete and laying 5,700 square metres of pavers on mortar, to create a paved roadway. With a design focus on bringing people into the pedestrian-friendly street, there was an emphasis on quality furniture and seating. Mature trees were planted to provide shade, with rain gardens to minimise stormwater runoff.

When faced with a complete redesign of the stormwater system mid project, Outside Ideas' contribution to the constructibility of the new design saved considerable time on the program and money for the client.

Sixth Street opened in March 2017 and has since won awards for its design on both a state and national level.
