South Australia police said the action has now ended.

They have thanked drivers and other road users for their patience. 

Adelaide was one of the 110 towns and cities across Australia which saw more than 300,000 people take to the streets to call for action on climate change.

The South Australian capital tallied crowds of 20,000, while Sydney and Melbourne brought in 80,000 and 100,000 protesters respectively. 

The Global Strike 4 Climate, held across the world on Friday, was the biggest climate mobilisation in Australia’s history, with more than double the turnout of the March protest.
