Completion of the North South Corridor (South Road section from River Torrens to Darlington) will deliver the only continuous north-south motorway connection through Adelaide.
The last remaining 10.5 kilometre section is the most complex in terms of direct roadside development and density of residential, mixed use and business-related properties.
The State and Federal Governments have already invested $4.8 billion in upgrades to the North-South Corridor and have committed $5.4 billion towards completing the T2D upgrade.
The project, currently in the planning phase, is evaluating design options for completion of the corridor based on combinations of at-grade, lowered, elevated motorway and/or tunnels.
This priority program will deliver an economic boost for the state and the local community, during and after construction; increase freight productivity, cut travel times, and improve safety for motorists.
The project will lead to the creation of thousands of jobs, both during construction and long-term.
Capital investment: $252 million to progress the planning and early enabling works.
This project is jointly funded by the Australian and South Australian Governments.
