South Road Update

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

20 January 2017

Bridge crews remain on site at the Tram Overpass and will work into the night to complete works allowing the reopening of South Road as soon as it is safe.

Work is progressing, however time was lost owing to severe weather conditions last night.

While every effort is being made to work as fast as possible, the stabilising works are complex and  an independent assessment will be undertaken before the road reopens.  At this point in time we cannot advise definitively what time this will occur.  Safety remains the highest priority.

Local businesses are still trading and access will be granted through the detour. However no one will be permitted under the overpass at south road. The access between Aroha Terrace and Norman Terrace remains open. 

Adelaide Metro tram services are operating as normal, with a speed reduction over the overpass.

Stop 6 South Road (on top of the overpass) will not be serviced. Passengers are advised to use Stop 7 Glandore or Stop 5 Black Forest, or seek alternate transport.

The Mike Turtur Bikeway will also remain closed.
