REMINDER: City Tram Extension Project works along North Terrace in January

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

3 January 2018

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure reminds road users that Stage 4 of the City Tram Extension Project will be underway from Monday 1 January, requiring the intersection of North Terrace and King William Street to be closed to all traffic from 10pm Monday 1 January to 6am Monday 15 January 2018.

Stage 4 works will involve the installation of tram tracks and overhead wires at the intersection.

Tram customers are also reminded that, to facilitate these City Tram Extension works, there will be no tram services running between Victoria Square and the Entertainment Centre from 1 January until 22 January 2018. Substitute bus services will be in operation during this time.

DPTI also advises road users that SA Power Networks will be progressively undertaking works along North Terrace in four stages between Frome Street and Gawler Place as part of the City Tram Extension Project from Monday 8 January 2018.

These works, which have been scheduled to minimise disruption as much as possible to retail, events and, cultural and university calendars, are planned to commence at 6am on Monday 8 January 2018 and be completed by 6pm on Thursday 25 January 2018, weather permitting. The works will be undertaken 24 hours per day seven days per week during this period.

Speed and lane restrictions will be in place during these works.

Access to businesses, carparks and properties will be maintained at all times and every effort will be made to minimise noise impacts to nearby residents and businesses.

The $80 million City Tram Extension project forms Stage One of the EastLINK and marks the first stage in the CityLINK loop around the CBD. It 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. It will also help to reactivate North Terrace.
