BEACH ROAD INTERCHANGE - CHANGES TO TRAFFIC CONDITIONS

From late June 2013, traffic will be diverted onto the new northern lanes of Beach Road and across the duplicated bridge to allow works to progress on the southern side of Beach Road. The new eastern on/off ramps will also be constructed at this time.

Traffic will continue to operate one way in each direction on Beach Road through the interchange and speed restrictions will be in place. The existing western on/off ramps will remain open to traffic.

Construction of the new shared use path will also continue and pedestrians and cyclists will continue to access or exit the existing shared use path at Columba Street or Beach Road.

These traffic arrangements will remain place until late November 2013, at which time the next stage of Beach Road interchange works will commence. Details of these works will be provided closer to this time.

If you have any questions regarding these works please call 1300 626 097 or by email SEDenquiries@bajvsed.com.au.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The $407.5 million duplication of the Southern Expressway will deliver an 18.5 kilometre multi-lane, two-way expressway between Bedford Park and Old Noarlunga by mid-2014.

From May 2012, three bridges crossing the existing expressway (Seacombe Road, Elizabeth Road and O'Sullivans Beach Road bridges), will be closed to traffic whilst road and bridge construction works are underway. During these closures cyclist and pedestrian access across the closed bridges will not be available. Detours will be in place, with traffic management and directional signage for guidance.

The Shared Use Path between Elizabeth and Beach Roads will also be closed for the duration of the bridge and interchange construction. A detour will be in place to direct cyclists and pedestrians around construction areas. At this stage of the project the remainder of the veloway and shared use path on the eastern side of the Expressway will remain unaffected.

Also during this time traffic restrictions will be in place on Beach Road, however cyclist and pedestrian access will be maintained.

The Coast to Vines track will also be closed at Hackham Creek, Noarlunga Downs from May 2012 to allow the expressway underpass to be extended. Again, alternative route detours will be in place.

For more detail about cyclist and pedestrian detours please call the project information line 1300 626 097, or email dpti.southernexpressway@sa.gov.au. Additional Project information can also be found at www.infrastrucutre.sa.gov.au


 Goodwood Junction Upgrade: Mike Turtur Bikeway detours  

People riding or walking along the Mike Turtur Bikeway (adjacent the Glenelg Tramline) are advised that a significant section of Railway Terrace South in Goodwood will not be easily accessible to both pedestrians and cyclists from 8 January to mid-February 2013. Please refer to the detour map for suggested alternative routes. For cyclists, the quickest route around the works into the city without dismounting to use pedestrian mazes and the Goodwood Station underpass will be via the Marino Rocks Greenway; via Nairne Terrace, Leader Street and the path behind the showgrounds to access Greenhill Road or the West Terrace shared use path. Please be patient and follow the detour signs around the site.

 

 Marino Rocks Greenway and Mike Turtur Bikeway Detours through Goodwood and Millswood  

The Goodwood Junction Upgrade Project involves works separating the existing freight rail line and Belair passenger line from the Noarlunga passenger lines. Construction of a rail underpass near Victoria Street will enable the Noarlunga line to be lowered below ground level with the freight and Belair lines above. The project will also involve upgrade of signalling and sections of track and the reconstruction of the Leader Street, Victoria Street and East Avenue rail crossings.

Early works to relocate existing underground services have now commenced and a number of local bicycle detours are required for travelling throughout the project area. The first of these detours will divert cyclists away from construction works on Cromer Parade and Devon Street South. Construction of a new sealed section of the Greenways shared use path through Forestville Reserve to Nairne Terrace will also require temporary detours around this area.

Bicycle detours will be clearly signposted along each route. These routes will need to change as work progresses to accommodate the different construction works areas. Please look out for changes to signage when cycling through Goodwood and Millswood.

For more information on the Goodwood Rail Junction Upgrade, or to provide feedback on local detours in place, please contact us at:

 Ongoing Veloway Closures for Controlled Blasting  

As part of the Southern Expressway Duplication a series of controlled blasts are required at the Darlington Escarpment. The blasts are designed to loosen underground rock to enable construction of the Southern Expressway in this location. The veloway will be subject to ongoing short term closures to ensure public safety during controlled blasting. Given the close proximity of the Patrick Jonker Veloway to the controlled blasting activities, cyclists will not be able to access the veloway between Majors Road and Seacombe Road for up to 1.5 hours as a safety precaution.

  • Veloway closed from Mid-July (between Majors Road and Seacombe Road) from 12.00pm - 1.30pm on days of blasting.
  • Blasting is expected to occur two to three times a week and continue for the next 9 months.

Cyclists can register to receive blast notifications and will receive SMS notice in advance of each short term closure. To register for advanced blast notice, please call 1300 626 097 or email SEDenquiries@bajvsed.com.au.

On-site signage will also be in place to notify cyclists of the status of access to the veloway.

 Coast to Vines Rail Trail - Mclaren Vale Overpass  

Cyclists using the Coast to Vines Rail Trail should be aware that construction has begun on the McLaren vale Overpass. DPTI's contractor Bardavcol has established a compound at the corner of Victor Harbor Road and Martins Road adjacent to the rail trail.

Major earthworks have started and heavily laden trucks and other vehicles cross the path frequently. Warning signs and orange bunting have been erected on the approach to the site and cyclists are asked to proceed with care.

Project enquiries
If you require further information or would like to discuss the McLaren Vale Overpass please:
call: 08 8402 1856 - line open 9 am to 5 pm weekdays with voicemail outside of these times. Bardavcol's emergency number is 0400 901 455.
