North-South Corridor upgrade
The North-South Corridor is one of Adelaide’s most important transport corridors. It is the major route for north and south bound traffic including freight vehicles running between Gawler and Old Noarlunga, a distance of 78 kilometres.
By mid 2014 almost 50km of the North-South Corridor will be complete. New road links have been built between Gawler and Port Wakefield Road Northern Expressway), Regency Road and to the Port River Expressway (North-South Motorway) and between Bedford Park and Old Noarlunga (Southern Expressway Duplication). Traffic flow along and across the route has also improved with the building of Gallipoli Underpass and the Glenelg Tram Overpass.
The Australian Government has committed to upgrade the North-South Corridor over the next decade and together with the South Australian Government has committed $620 million to construct the Darlington Upgrade Project.
