The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure advises motorists that weekend works will take place along North Terrace between Pulteney Street and Gawler Place from 10pm Friday 24 November until 6am Monday 27 November as part of the $80 million City Tram Extension.

Works undertaken will include the laying of new tram tracks, concrete pouring, road resurfacing and line marking. Works will also include the continuing installation of new conduits by SA Power Networks.

Speed and lane restrictions will be in place in the vicinity of the works, however the road will remain open to traffic at all times. A 25km/h speed restriction will be in place while workers are on site.

Every effort will be made to minimise noise impacts to nearby residents and businesses. However, some noise will be unavoidable during this period.

Access to businesses, car parks and properties will be maintained throughout the works.

The South Australian Government’s $80 million City Tram Extension will deliver the first stage of the AdeLINK tram network – a one-kilometre extension to the city’s East End, 350m extension along King William Road and the purchase of three additional trams. This will provide a new service to the bustling East End shopping, restaurant and tourism precinct, while further invigorating the city's cultural and education boulevard.

The project will deliver four additional tram stops – Festival Plaza, Art Gallery, University and Botanic Gardens.
