UPCOMING NIGHT AND WEEKEND WORKS: TRAFFIC SWITCH TO THE NEW NORTHBOUND SURFACE ROAD AND INSTALLATION OF TEMPORARY U-TURNS ON SOUTH ROAD NEAR TORRENS ROAD- 7pm Friday 16 December to 6am Monday 19 December 2016

As part of the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, the T2T Alliance will be switching traffic to the new north bound surface road on South Road, between Torrens Road and Tait Street.

In addition, temporary signalised u-turns will be installed on South Road near Tait Street and at Dartmouth Street.

These works will take place from 7pm Friday 16 December to 6am Monday 19 December 2016 and enable construction of the Torrens Road bridge to commence.

Key activities

  • Removal and replacement of traffic islands, line marking and asphalting.
  • Installation of traffic signals, kerbing, signage and temporary concrete traffic barriers.

A vacuum truck, mobile cranes, excavators, compaction equipment, asphalt pavers, heavy and light vehicles will be used to perform these works. Lighting towers will be in operation during night works.

Works will be managed to minimise disturbance to local residents however some noise can be expected.

Traffic management

  • South Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Hawker Street and Sunbeam Road.
  • Torrens Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Days Road and Blight Street.
