Community Liaison Group for Stages 2 and 3

The department, through its Transport Services Division, has formed a Community Liaison Group (CLG) to discuss Stages 2 and 3 project works and facilitate information flow to the community. The CLG will operate throughout the design and construction phases of the project, over a period of approximately two years. Members of the Port River Expressway project team and Abigroup Contractors Pty Ltd. will attend all CLG meetings.

Temporary traffic management arrangements

Like any major roadworks project, there will be some inconvenience for traffic during the construction of Stages 2 and 3 of the Port River Expressway, for the ultimate long-term gain in transport efficiencies.

To cater for the increase of traffic that Stage 1 of the Port River Expressway will generate through the Port Centre until the road bridge (Stage 2) is built, temporary arrangements have been put in place to improve traffic flow.

These temporary arrangements will provide greater capacity at the St Vincent Street and Commercial Road intersection and the traffic signals have been altered at this location to give priority to west-bound traffic.

Video cameras have also been installed at the intersection of St Vincent Street and Commercial Road to monitor traffic movements, so that traffic signal sequencing can be adjusted to suit traffic conditions and delay times for motorists are minimised. Video monitoring will allow the department to respond quickly if traffic patterns change.

The department undertook a comprehensive 'pre-opening' survey of the expressway in relation to traffic numbers, speed and the type of vehicles accessing the general area in order to ensure that assumptions regarding traffic management were appropriate. This survey will be repeated at intervals up to and following the opening of Stage 2 to ensure that these assumptions remain appropriate.

Community information for visitors to Port Adelaide

Construction of Stages 2 and 3 of the Port River Expressway has required the relocation of the South Australian Aviation Museum from its former site between Docks 1 and 2 into the Port Adelaide museum precinct on Lipson Street, adjacent to the National Railway Museum.
