UPDATE: South Road Tram Overpass rectification works

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

3 November 2017

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises road users South Road will be closed overnight to all through traffic below the South Road Tram Overpass between the hours of 11pm Tuesday 7 November and 5am Wednesday 8 November 2017.

This overnight closure is required to complete the lift of the bridge as part of rectification works, and follows night works undertaken on Wednesday and Thursday this week to prepare the structure.

DPTI is making every effort to minimise impacts to motorists, residents and businesses.

Road users will be detoured via Cross Road, Marion Road and Anzac Highway during this time. Adelaide Metro buses and emergency service vehicles excepted and access for local businesses and residents will be maintained either side of the overpass.

Tram and bus services will not be affected.

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

We expect all works to be complete and the path re-opened to pedestrians and cyclists by the end of this year, weather permitting.
