As part of the Northern Connector Project, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that night works will occur on the Port River Expressway between Hanson Road and Magazine Road between the hours of 7pm and 6am, from Thursday 12 January to Tuesday 24 January 2017.

Works include service investigations, asphalt works and the installation of temporary concrete safety barriers.

The Port River Expressway will remain open to traffic in both directions at all times, with a 25 km/h speed restriction in place while workers are on site. Lane and other speed restrictions may apply subject to on site conditions.

Signage and traffic management will be in place to advise motorists of the changed traffic conditions.

From Monday 16 January 2017, a speed reduction from 90 to 80 km/h will be introduced on the Port River Expressway between Hanson Road and the South Road Superway intersection with Salisbury Highway. This speed reduction will be in place during the construction of the Northern Connector Southern Interchange which is expected to be completed in early 2019.

The Tour Down Under ‘Hostworks Stage 1’ from Unley to Lyndoch on Tuesday, 17 January 2017 commencing at 10.30am will not be impacted.

Some noise can be expected while works are completed, however every effort will be made to minimise disturbance to local businesses as much as possible.
