Keeping the traffic moving

The Darlington Project is a $620 million road infrastructure upgrade which forms part of the long-term vision of a North-South Corridor for Adelaide. Darlington contains the busiest road segment (Main South Road~73,000vpd) and busiest at-grade intersection (Main South Road and Sturt Road ~98,000vpd) in South Australia. The project is grade separating five existing signalised intersections across a 2km stretch of Man South Road with eight road bridges being built.

The construction of this project is already underway (with a completion date of 2019) and the AITPM is providing exclusive insight into the project and its construction. This event will involve a site visit on the via a bus tour.

Gateway South (the construction and design join venture) will present on the project and what is involved in keeping the traffic flowing whilst this massive undertaking occurs. The presentation will touch on the tasks undertaken from a traffic management / construction view (day to day), as well as looking at the design side to prepare for each major switch to keep the traffic performance at an acceptable level, while moving the road alignment around to enable the construction of the infrastructure.

As this is a site visit, we will be providing transport to and from the site for those who wish to use it from the CBD. Driving to the site is also available (parking can be provided).
