South Road temporary closure

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

26 October 2017

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure advises motorists that rectification works on the South Road Tram Overpass shared use path will impact South Road on Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2 November 2017.

Wednesday 1 November

  • South Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction below the overpass between the hours of 8pm and 5am when preparation works will be undertaken to lift bridge beams on the following night.

Thursday 2 November

  • South Road will be closed to all through traffic below the overpass between the hours of 11pm and 5am.
  • Adelaide Metro buses and emergency service vehicles excepted.
  • Road users will be detoured via Cross Road, Marion Road and Anzac Highway during this time.

Access for local businesses and residents will be maintained either side of the overpass.

Tram and bus services will not be affected.

Signage will be in place to advise road users of changed traffic conditions and road users are asked to use extra caution when workers are on site. Traffic and speed restrictions will apply in the vicinity of the works.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise impacts to motorists, residents and businesses.

Further traffic restrictions may be required at a later date to continue with these works.

The rectification works continue to run to schedule, and we expect all works to be complete, and the path re-opened to pedestrians and cyclists by the end of this year.
