Northbound motorists are now able to access the newly-constructed lowered Darlington motorway under Tonsley Boulevard from Saturday 2nd November.

This will allow northbound motorists travelling from Main South Road and the Southern Expressway to travel continuously along the lowered motorway to South Road, north of Tonsley Boulevard.

Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll said the state government is investing in infrastructure to minimise congestion across Adelaide and reduce travel times to improve road safety.

“The Darlington Upgrade Project is continuing to progress and today we are announcing another traffic switch that will help people get home or work faster and safer,” he says.

“The opening of this section of the lowered motorway to northbound traffic will improve traffic flow for motorists heading into the city for work or as they go about their daily lives.”

The Darlington Upgrade Project is part of the wider North-South Corridor project in Adelaide. The upgrade will see improvements to around 3.3 kilometres of the existing Main South Road.

The $667 million project is jointly funded by the Federal and State Governments ($533.6 million federally funded and $133.4 million state funded).  It is scheduled for completion in mid-2020.
