Park Terrace, Fitzroy Terrace, Torrens Road Upgrade
The Australian and South Australian Governments are continuing to build world class infrastructure in South Australia by undertaking early works projects for the North-South Corridor, Torrens Road to River Torrens Project.
The $11.3M upgrade of Park Terrace, Fitzroy Terrace and Torrens Road will improve efficiency and safety. The project will provide benefits to all road users by addressing the current traffic congestion along this route. The project will also ease traffic congestion when major construction works on the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project gets underway later this year.
The Park Terrace, Fitzroy Terrace and Torrens Road upgrade consists of:
- An additional traffic lane in each direction on Park Terrace / Fitzroy Terrace east of Port Road through to Prospect Road, utilising the wide centre median that currently exists along most sections of these roads.
- The existing bicycle lane on the southern side of Fitzroy Terrace between Prospect Road and Torrens Road, will be removed and a new bicycle/pedestrian path constructed through the Parklands (subject to Council agreement). On road bicycle lanes will remain along the rest of the project.
- The provision of a third city-bound lane on Torrens Road, utilising the existing long left turn lane into Churchill Road as it crosses the rail line and removing the dedicated bus lane on the northern approach to the Churchill Road intersection.
- Controlled signalised right turn movements from Park Terrace into Hawker Street and War Memorial Drive.
- Removal of trees in the centre median on Park Terrace between Fourth Street and Sixth Street.
- Revegetation in service road medians where possible and practical.
No land acquisition is required for this project as widening will occur within the road corridor or road reserve.
The design of this upgrade aims to minimise impacts on adjacent land uses, owners and tenants, while balancing the constraints of this upgrade, including its close proximity to the Parklands, the rail overpass, the Bowden redevelopment and the existing high voltage power lines. All of these factors have been balanced with the project objectives of improving efficiency and safety for road users. Consequently, the majority of the design is constrained. However there are certain elements such as landscaping and revegetation which are being discussed with local Council.

The community engagement period closed on 30 January 2015. A range of comments were received from the local community, stakeholders and from people who walk, drive and cycle along these roads. Out of the 1300 letters sent to people living in the adjacent community and key stakeholders, a total of 42 submissions were received.
The department has reviewed all feedback received and, where possible, suggestions have been incorporated into the final design.
Construction will start in late July 2015 and is expected to take approximately six months to complete, weather permitting.
Some night work will be required to minimise disruption to road users and to complete the project in the shortest possible time. Night works will be managed to minimise disturbance to the local community as much as possible and adjacent residents will be provided with advance notice.
