As part of the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, the T2T Alliance will be undertaking major pavement and asphalt works on Torrens Road between the west side of the intersection with South Road to the Days Road / Lamont Street intersection.

Key activities

  • Removal of existing road pavement
  • Laying new pavement, asphalting and line marking

An excavator, profiler, compaction equipment, asphalt paver, rock breaker (intermittent only) trucks and light vehicles will be used to perform these works. Lighting towers will also be in operation during night works.
