Mark Elford, Director Road Transport Policy and Planning, Policy and Planning Division, Department of Transport, Energy and Infrastructure, SA speaks about the State Government's detailed plans for a dual purpose transport link designed to reduce freight rail travelling through Adelaide’s northern suburbs and provide a more direct route for freight exports at the Port of Adelaide. The presentation was given at the 2012 South Australia Transport Infrastructure Summit. For more information on the annual event, please visit the conference website http://goo.gl/tX8g5.

CASE STUDY: The northern Connector – A progress report on plans for a dual-use road and rail corridor linking northern Expressway with Port River Expressway and South Road

  1. 1. north-south corridornorthern connectorMark Elford6 June 2012
  2. 2. north-south corridor78km non-stop from Gawler toOld Noarlunga• completed projects:• Gallipoli underpass• Northern Expressway• Glenelg Tram Overpass• current priorities:• South Road Superway• Regency Road to TorrensRiver• duplication of SouthernExpressway• Northern Connector6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connector
  3. 3. • new multi-mode (road and rail)transport corridor• currently listed as a project with‘real potential’ by InfrastructureAustralia (June 2011)• part of the north-south corridorbetween Gawler and OldNoarlunga, linking the north withAdelaide, and its major port6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connectorUNDER CONSTRUCTIONCOMPLETEnorthern connector
  4. 4. project of national significance• improves road and rail freight access into Adelaide and South Australia’smajor port from intrastate regions and interstates• in accordance with the 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide, highlydemanded for:• increasing productivity• developing residential land use• linking Southern and Northern industry• reducing greenhouse emissions• separating urban passenger rail services from interstate rail freightservices• an integral part of Adelaide’s north-south corridor committed to by bothState and Federal governments6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connector
  5. 5. 6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connectorlinks vital economic regions• freight connections between PortAdelaide and Adelaide Airport toevery other mainland state• links the premier wine and tourismregions of the Barossa, Clare Valleyand the Riverland• the Virginia food bowl – agribusiness• primary and horticultural industries• key mining and regional centres• key SA grain ports and silos
  6. 6. 6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connectorlinks vital economic regions• key industrial areas with automotive($1.7b*), defence ($10b*) andelectronics• new strategic employment lands -Greater Edinburgh Parks (to attractbetween 25-50% of new demand)• manufacturing - 28% of state share• cater for 118,000 new jobs and 270,000people in the Northern and BarossaRegions to 2038
  7. 7. 6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connectoroverview - road• 12 km north of Adelaide CBD• 15km expressway, 3+3 lanes, 110 km/h• managed motorway (ITS backbone,VMS, VSL, incident management etc)• connects Sturt Hwy and NorthernExpressway with the Port RiverExpressway and South Road Superway• includes staging considerations forinterchange access as traffic demandgrows
  8. 8. 6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connectoroverview – rail• 21 km freight rail link between NExy and the Port, overall the new railtrack is approx. 30.9km in length.• single track with two passing loops, standard gauge• 6 grade separations in total to facilitate a non-stop road and railcorridor, including 2 rail overpasses, and 4 road overpasses• potentially, up to 11 rail crossings can be removed from the existingrail network• links with the Adelaide to Perth, Darwin and Sydney rail lines• growing national export task, particularly mining, requires efficientlink to the Port

  11. 11. 6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connectorinterchanges – north, south and waterloo corner• the northern interchange connects in with the recently completedNorthern Expressway• southern interchange connects with the south road superway• connecting the South Road Superway to the Nothern Expressway thenorthern connector completes almost 45km of the 78km non-stop north-south corridor (NEXY (24km), connector (15km), superway (4.8km)

  17. 17. 6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connectordevelopment of northern connector• The preferred option delivers:• vital link to the Port of Adelaide with intermodal facilities, industrialclusters and the National Road Network for key intra and interstatefreight movements• direct contribution to the national objective of addressing freightcapacity constraints• better use of existing road asset (refer road traffic demandinformation – next slide)• minimisation of impacts on public transport patronage
  18. 18. 6/6/2012north south corridor - northern connectorforecast traffic volumes on northern connector• the Northern Connector will cater for 55,000 vehicles per day nearNorthern Expressway (northern end), and 78,700 vehicles per day nearSouth Road Superway (southern end) by 2031• it is predicted that 39,000 north-south trips will be on the existingnetwork to the east leading to better use of existing road assets andimproved level of service for the Northern Connector
