Flinders Link - temporary closure for Main South Road (northbound)

Wednesday, 12 February 2020

As part of the Flinders Link Project, the Main South Road (northbound) surface road, will be temporarily closed from 5am to 8pm, Saturday, 15 February.

Steel beam bridge girders have been installed across Main South Road and the Southern Expressway (lowered motorway) to form the base of the elevated bridge deck.

As part of the temporary closure, concrete pours are required to be undertaken to complete the base of the bridge deck.

The concrete pours will take place on top of the two bridge girders and the pre-cast concrete deck panels which have been installed across the Main South Road (northbound) surface road.

From 5am to 8pm, Saturday, 15 February, the Main South Road (northbound) surface road between Flinders Drive and Sturt Road will be closed.

The following detours will be in place:

  • Access to Sturt Road for Main South Road (northbound) traffic will be via Marion Road.
  • Access to Sturt Road for Southern Expressway (northbound) traffic will be via the Marion Road exit ramp.

Access for emergency services vehicles will be maintained at all times during the closure.

Access to the hospital for northbound vehicles will be maintained via the right turn from Main South Road to Flinders Drive.

Motorists will be able to turn right from Main South Road into Riverside Drive and Brookside Road.

Bedford Park residents wanting to travel northbound via Main South Road will be required to turn left onto Main South Road, complete a U-turn between Marion Road and Seacombe Road and then follow the detour via Marion Road and Sturt Road.

Alternatively, for northbound access to the Southern Expressway (lowered motorway), a U-turn can be undertaken at the Brookside Road junction.

Pedestrians are reminded to keep clear of the work zones, however traffic management will be in place throughout the closure to assist with pedestrian movements. Cyclists will be detoured as per the detour for motorists.

Stop 27 on Main South Road (northbound) will be closed. All other existing bus stops will be serviced. Detours will be in place and for further information regarding the detours, changes to bus stops and timetables please visit

Please plan ahead, allow extra travel time, take extra care when workers are on site and observe speed and lane restrictions when travelling through the area.
