Construction Begins on $896 Million Torrens to Torrens Road Project.
Major works are currently underway on the upgrade of the River Torrens to Torrens Road project along the North-South Corridor in South Australia. This upgrade is worth $896 million. During construction the project will be supporting 480 jobs per year, as well as boosting the productive capacity of the transport network in Adelaide.
The upgrade will be 3.7km long, and include a 3km section of non-stop road along one of the busiest sections of the North- South corridor, reducing delays and congestion significantly.
It will also include a 2km section of the lowered motorway (non-stop) along with a planned overpass for the Outer Harbour rail line. Six intersection upgrades will be delivered with the project, as well as improved pedestrian and cycling routes.
Work is expected to be completed on the project by the end of 2018, and when combined with the 2.3km Darlington Upgrade (worth $620 million), both upgrades will support approximately 800 jobs per year.
The South Australian and Commonwealth Governments have committed $1.5 billion together, helping to ensure that both of these vital projects will be delivered by late 2018. The Commonwealth Government will be investing $50 billion on world class infrastructure for a more prosperous and stronger Australia.
There are currently up to 52,000 vehicles using the road per day, but once this section of the corridor is completed it will be able to accommodate up to 115,000 vehicles.
Because the movement of commuters and freight will be more efficient along the North-South Corridor, productivity and economic growth will be boosted, helping build a stronger economy for South Australia.
This project will also improve access to key residential and industrial growth areas, helping to make Adelaide a better place to both live and do business.
