As part of the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, the T2T Alliance is undertaking pavement and asphalt reinstatement works at the South Road intersection with Port Road. To minimise disruption to peak hour traffic, these works will be undertaken from 8pm Friday 29 September to 6am Tuesday 3 October 2017, weather permitting.

Depending on the works progress, some finishing night works immediately after the long weekend may be required.

Key activities

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

A profiler, 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.
