As part of the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, the T2T Alliance will be undertaking a range of works during January 2016 at various locations including:
The works include:
Service relocation works at Port Road and at the Port Road and South Road intersection are expected to be complete by late March 2016, with construction of the new Port Road and Grange Road bridges commencing in early April 2016.
Key activities include: excavation of services trenches, stormwater pipe installation, water main connections, sewer and gas service relocations and pavement reinstatement.
Various types of machinery will be used, including excavators, directional drill, asphalt pavers, rollers, piling rig, crawler crane trucks and light vehicles. Lighting towers will also be in operation for night works.
There will be temporary lane closures and speed restrictions along Port Road and South Road and intermittent local road closures in and around South Road, north of Port Road up to Torrens Road.
Current parking arrangements in the Port Road median will change.
The following car parks will remain OPEN:
The following car parks will CLOSE from Monday 4 January 2016 until mid-2017 (approximately).
City bound on-street parking along Port Road between Queen Street, Croydon and Anne Street, Hindmarsh will be restricted at all times. Generally, all other on-street car parking will be maintained during peak periods where possible.
Access to businesses and residential properties will be maintained and works will be managed to minimise disturbance to the local community as much as possible.
Signage will be installed to alert motorists to changed traffic conditions. We encourage motorists to follow all directional signage, travel safely through the work area and obey the designated speed limit.
Electronic travel time message boards located on Port Road and South Road will alert motorists to traffic delays.
The T2T Alliance will be taking a break from Thursday 24 December until Monday 4 January 2016. During this period no site specific construction activities will take place. Stock piles will be treated with a dust suppressant and watering carts will be in operation as required during the break. Site security will also be maintained.
Please refer to the project website for further information about these construction activities and regular updates on traffic arrangements that will be in place in each location.
Please call 1300 794 899 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further queries.
The T2T Alliance wishes you a very safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
