How will the project be constructed?

The construction program will be carefully staged, the new surface roads and bridges will be constructed first so that traffic can be shifted onto these new roads while the lowered motorway is being constructed.

Will there be night works?

To minimise impacts on traffic flow, some works will be undertaken in the evening, during the night and on weekends.

Will bus services be affected?

Bus routes will be maintained for the duration of works. However, some bus stops will need to be relocated or temporarily closed.

Advance notice of relocations or closures will be provided to bus users via signs at affected bus stops and on the Adelaide Metro website.

The final configuration of bus stops will be reviewed as part of the final design and will take into account the new Flinders Drive extension to Sturt Road, and the Flinders Link project.

Can I still get to the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders Private Hospital during construction?

Yes, access will be maintained to both hospitals during construction.
