3.1 North South Road Corridor

Completion of the North South Corridor in the south requires a commitment from the State and Federal Governments to funding and to working with the Councils at an early design stage

The following two stretches of road are critical:

  1. the completion of the non-stop north-south road corridor from Tonsley to Anzac Highway 
  2. extending the duplicated road south of Old Noarlunga to Sellicks Beach

Given the size and geography of the metropolitan area, it is essential that there are fast and efficient north-south transport links between Southern Adelaide and the CBD and beyond.  This is important for accessing employment opportunities, moving goods and attracting visitors to the region as well as improving safety and travel times. Access across the corridor and to areas either side is also critical for both business and the wider community.

The State and Federal Governments have committed $620 million to the Darlington Upgrade component of the North South Corridor. This complements the completed work on the Southern Expressway duplication from Darlington to Old Noarlunga.

Design is critical to ensure the road development delivers an economic uplift.  Completion of the North South corridor to get the full benefit from the already completed sections requires continued commitment to delivering the outstanding components.
