O-Bahn City Access Project


Note: Concept for illustration purposes only.

The O-Bahn City Access Project builds on the State Government’s significant investment in a stronger public transport network and the government is committed to delivering the best possible outcome for our great city.

The primary objective of the O-Bahn City Access Project is to improve travel times and reliability for users of the O-Bahn service between the end of the busway at Gilberton and Grenfell Street and to reduce traffic congestion and delays, particularly on the Inner Ring Route.

The $160 million project will extend the O-Bahn system from the end of the busway at Gilberton into the cross-city priority (bus) lanes on Grenfell Street. The project includes the creation of centrally aligned priority bus lanes along Hackney Road and a dedicated 670 metre bus tunnel from adjacent the National Wine Centre to near Grenfell Street, providing quicker, more reliable access for O-Bahn buses into the city.

McConnell Dowell Australia is the main works contractor for the O-Bahn City Access Project. Around 450 full time equivalent jobs are being created over the life of the project which is being conducted in line with South Australia’s Industry Participation Policy to provide important job opportunities for local South Australian businesses.

The O-Bahn City Access Project is scheduled for completion at the end of 2017.

 

Big Upgrades Planned locally…

A NEW dining and restaurant precinct “inspired by the nearby Adelaide Hills wine region” is expected to open at Tea Tree Plaza by late next year.

Design plans for the revamp, which were released to the NorthEastern Weekly on Monday, show an expanded Hoyts cinema complex with three extra cinemas.

These include what claims to be the state’s first-ever “premium dine-in cinema experience” — to be called “Lux” — combining recliner seating with fine wine, premium food, and improved sound and vision.

The upgrade, which includes ten new restaurants, a new outdoor playground and nearly 100 new shops, is expected to create more than 650 jobs in construction and ongoing retail positions.

About 250 car spaces will go as part of the redevelopment but it is unclear as yet how the shortfall will be addressed.

Works have already begun on the upgrade, with the carpark and roadway between the Caffe Primo entrance and North East Rd now closed.

Commuters can no longer take right turns into Tea Tree Plaza from North East Rd or gain access to undercover parking from Reservoir Rd.

Westfield centre manager Lachlan Monfries said the redevelopment would be “inspired by the nearby Adelaide Hills wine region”.

“The precinct will be a place for everyone to enjoy all year ’round with a vibrant atmosphere in summer and a cosy escape in winter,” Mr Monfries said.

“The area will be brought to life with unique design elements that include light-filled green space, water features and fire pits.”

The new outdoor playground and restaurant areas would create a vibrant space for family, friends and food-lovers to come together, he said.

“The new precinct will be a destination where customers can have a complete dining and lifestyle experience, all in one place.

“The precinct will bring local wineries and food producers to the dining destination with ongoing pop-up activations and experiences.”

The revamp was first announced in 2006.

A separate State Government development is also expected to provide 300 extra car parks at Modbury’s Park ‘n’ Ride near the O-Bahn bus stop.

A timeline for the Park ‘n’ Ride project, which is due to begin next year, is still unknown.
