As part of the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, the T2T Alliance will be installing gantries across South Road, near Lamont Street, Croydon Park. The gantries will be used to mount Intelligent Transport System infrastructure (electronic signage) which will be operational later in the year, when the lowered motorway is open.

To minimise disturbance to peak hour traffic, the works will be undertaken each night between 7pm and 6am on Wednesday, 16 May, and Thursday, 17 May, (finishing 6am Friday 18 May), weather permitting. These works will require a temporary closure of South Road, between Torrens Road and Pym Street.

Key activities        

  • Installation of gantry columns (Wednesday night).
  • Lifting and installation of gantry beams (Thursday night).


An elevated work platform, impact wrench, mobile cranes, trucks and light vehicles will be used to perform these works. Lighting towers will also be in operation during night works.

Some noise and vibration can be expected during these works, however, the work will be managed to minimise disturbance to local residents and businesses as much as possible.

Temporary traffic arrangements

  • Lane and speed restrictions will apply on the northbound lanes of South Road in the vicinity of the works.
  • Signage will alert motorists to the changed traffic conditions.

From 9pm to 5am, Wednesday, 16 May and Thursday, 17 May (finishing 5am Friday 18 May):

  • South Road will be temporarily closed to northbound traffic between Torrens Road and Pym Street.
  • Local access to Croydon Park will be available via Torrens Road and Days Road.
  • South Road southbound will remain open.
  • Signage will be in place to direct motorists to local detour routes.
  • Signage will alert motorists to the changed traffic conditions, alternative routes for light and heavy vehicles and local detours.
  • Heavy  and Light vehicle detour map

Pedestrians and cyclists
