Message from the Chief Executive
Connecting east and west
The Regency Road to Pym Street Project achieved an important milestone this week with the opening of a pedestrian and cyclist overpass, providing an east-west connection between Torrens Road and Regency Road.
The overpass spans 57 metres over both the North-South Motorway and South Road surface roads, and weighs almost 95 tonnes. It provides 5.6m of clearance for large vehicles travelling underneath and includes anti-throw screens.
This is another great step forward on this project, which is moving ahead at a very impressive rate.
Showing progress on new bridge
It’s exciting for the people of Port Augusta to see progress being made on the Joy Baluch AM Bridge Duplication, which is a critical piece of regional infrastructure that will make a very big difference to the local community.
To construct the marine portion of the new bridge, a Jack Up Barge has been mobilised into the gulf, which anchors itself to the seabed and jacks up to form a solid work platform from which a 250-tonne crane and other equipment can construct the new bridge. This is now all in place, along with two land-based cranes.
Getting community input
It’s good to see active community involvement in the Torrens to Darlington Project, with the first round of reference group meetings held recently.
The groups offer a forum for community members and businesses to provide input on various aspects of the project during the planning and design phase, with members representing the diversity of the communities along this final section of the North-South Corridor.
There are two reference groups for each stage of the project.

Kicking off Footy Express
With the AFL season set to kick off again next week, our department is spreading the word about the Think! Road Safety Footy Express service, which provides free public transport to and from games.
Importantly, this campaign places a clear emphasis on the Think! Road Safety message, leveraging the influence of Adelaide’s two AFL clubs by using footballers in promotions.
A digital Footy Express journey planner has also been added this year, offering transport options based on a person’s location, which is the kind of convenience that can quickly attract new customers.
Thanks to those involved in bringing this together.

Today’s Friday Flashback revisits Adelaide’s iconic Central Market, back in 1923. Viewed from Grote Street, it shows people milling around outside John Atkin's 'Pay and Carry' Store, one of the then-new shops at the market.
