The upgrade is designed to cater for more than double the volume of traffic, improving travel times and reducing congestion at major intersections.
The $896m project involves the design and construct of a 3.4km section of new road running North to South between Torrens Road and Ashwin Parade, and includes a 2km grade-separated (lowered) non-stop motorway with three lanes in each direction. The 2km grade-separated motorway runs parallel to surface roads on either side which offer access to intersections and major roads to the east and west, greatly reducing travel time and congestion for motorists.
Additionally, the incorporation of a rail overpass adjacent the newly reconfigured Port Road intersection, removes the Outer Harbour rail and road interface, greatly reducing congestion in this location.
York Civil, along with its Alliance partners led the engineering design solutions and construction staging and sequencing. York also brings to the project a local workforce, more than 500 major items of plant and equipment, and a dedicated local network of contractors and suppliers developed over its 25 year history in South Australia.
Dominic Vieceli, Managing Director, said “Torrens to Torrens is an important project for South Australia, delivering a long-term solution to the main North-South transport links and offers a significant economic boost to the State. Many major projects across Australia face similar challenges when delivering major infrastructure works in brownfields urban environments, each requiring significant interfaces with traffic, public transport, utilities and the community. Clients are looking for contracting partners who bring innovative solutions and above all, are flexible and collaborative in their approach to the delivery of these increasingly difficult infrastructure projects”.
