Port River Expressway (PRExy)

Port River Expressway

The Port River Expressway links South Australia's major port and rail terminals at the Port of Adelaide directly with AusLink National Network to Perth and Darwin via Port Wakefield Road, the AusLink National Network to Sydney and Melbourne and the Interstate Mainline rail network.  The expressway is an important strategic transport route for South Australia which will contribute to the states economic development by providing an expressway, new road and rail bridge connections across the Port River, linking our export enterprises and industrial areas with key transport routes and facilities. 

The project also accommodates the vision for the port's future, contributing to the future prosperity of the state's tourism industry and urban regeneration of the Port Adelaide Centre.  The project is one of the key elements in the Strategic Infrastructure Plan for South Australia to improve international links, which will reduce the future costs of trade and support future growth in exports.
