Project Assessment Report

As part of the ongoing planning process for the North-South Corridor - Torrens Road to River Torrens, the Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure has released the Project Assessment Report (PAR).  The report is a comprehensive document that explains the need for the project, describes the project and summarises the environmental, social, economic and engineering assessments undertaken.

The report also describes modifications to the concept design initially released in May 2013, that have been made as a result of these investigations and community feedback received to date.

What is the Project Assessment Report?

The release of the Project Assessment Report is the next stage of the Torrens Road to River Torrens project's planning phase. The document has been developed as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process for the project.

The Project Assessment Report explains the need for the project, describes the project and summarises the environmental, social, economic and engineering assessments undertaken on the concept design. The report outlines the measures proposed to avoid or minimise the effects of the project.

Through this process members of the public, community organisations, and government agencies can comment on any aspect of the project.
