Linear Park Path Closures for O-Bahn City Access Project

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

29 March 2016

The Linear Park paths underneath Hackney Bridge will be closed from 30 March 2016 until late 2016, as part of the O-Bahn City Access Project works.

The paths will be closed to allow a new shared use pedestrian / cycling bridge to be constructed across the River Torrens and for the widening of Hackney Bridge to accommodate the centrally aligned priority bus lanes on Hackney Road.

Alternative walking and cycling routes have been developed. Signage is located at strategic locations along the shared paths to notify users of detours.

All closures and works as part of the O-Bahn City Access Project are being carefully programmed to ensure the project is delivered safely and efficiently.

The $160 million O-Bahn City Access Project will extend the O-Bahn from its current exit point at Gilberton into the cross-city priority (bus) lanes on Grenfell Street, through the creation of centrally aligned priority bus lanes along Hackney Road and a dedicated bus tunnel from adjacent the National Wine Centre to near Grenfell Street.

Regular updates about the project and a map of the closed paths and detour routes is available on the project website at: or contact the Project Team on 1300 443 198, for more information. 

Cyclists can also visit the Cycle Instead Journey Planner at This is an online tool that helps plan your cycling and walking journey and will include all detour information.

DPTI thanks Linear Park path users and the community for their patience and understanding whilst these important infrastructure works are being undertaken.
