Torrens Road to Torrens River Traffic Switches - Stage 2 and 3

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

26 April 2016

After the successful implementation of the temporary signalised roundabout at the South Road intersection with Grange Road/Manton Street, Stage 2 of the Traffic Switches is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 27 April 2016 on Port Road.

From Wednesday 27 April 2016, after peak hour traffic, all right turns from South Road into Port Road will be banned and motorists will need to use the new signalised u-turn facilities on Port Road at Queen Street and near Coglin Street.

The South Road/Port Road intersection will continue to operate as a signalised intersection during these works. Road users are advised to observe signage, use extra caution when workers are on site and use alternate routes to avoid delays.

Stage 3 of the Traffic Switch is scheduled to occur from Saturday 7 May 2016 to Sunday

8 May 2016 with the re-alignment of the South Road intersection with Port Road to allow for the Port Road bridge construction.

From 6 am Monday 9 May 2016, traffic will be redirected to a new South Road carriageway between Port Road and the Outer Harbor rail line.

Temporary traffic arrangements and clearly marked detour routes will be in place to direct road users around the works at the South Road intersection with Port Road during Stage 3 Traffic Switch.

The city bound Bus Stop 10 will be relocated 85 metres west to the other side of Queen Street and out bound Bus Stop 8 will be relocated 100 metres east, closer to the city. Signage will be in place at the affected bus stops alerting passengers to the nearest available bus stop. Please visit for more information.

For more information and detour plans, please refer to the T2T Alliance website, email or telephone the project enquiry line 1300 794 899.

The Australian and South Australian Governments have each committed $448 million to the North-South Corridor Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, supporting on average 480 jobs a year during construction.
