As part of the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, the T2T Alliance will be undertaking a range of activities, including pavement reinstatement, asphalting, kerbing and footpath works and the installation of new stormwater infrastructure in the southbound lanes of South Road between Pym Street and Overland Road, Croydon Park.

Weather permitting, these works will take place as day and intermittent night works, from 7am Monday 26 March to 6am Monday 9 April, with the exception of the Easter period (6am Friday 30 March to 6am Tuesday 3 April) when no works will be undertaken.

To facilitate these works, Overland Road will be temporarily closed at South Road, from 6am Monday 26 March, following the re-opening of Pym Street, until 6am Monday 9 April.

Key activities   

  • Excavation of trench
  • Installation of stormwater infrastructure.
  • Backfill and reinstatement of the pavement.

Excavators, vacuum trucks, road saw, profilers, compaction equipment, paver, rock breaker, road saw, mobile crane, line-marking equipment, trucks and light vehicles will be used to perform these works. Lighting towers will also be in operation during night works.
