Project Overview

On 10 November 2020, the State Government announced an additional $25 million in funding over two years for the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride, bringing total funding for the project to $33 million.

The aim of the project is to meet demand for Park ‘n’ Ride commuters and to increase public transport usage.

The existing Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride is located on The Grove Way and currently contains 177 ground-level, off-street parking spaces for commuters accessing O-Bahn bus services.

The new Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride will comprise three levels of parking (ground floor plus two upper levels) and when complete will provide 450 car parking spaces, which will include ten Disability Discrimination Act 1992, compliant car parks and provision for secure bicycle storage. The new Park ‘n’ Ride will be constructed on the site of the existing car park and its surrounds.

Works for the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride Project commenced Wednesday, 17 February 2021, with project completion expected in early 2022, weather permitting.

Upcoming works

The following activities will be carried out over the next several months:

• transportation of fill and rubble to site, which is then compacted by a roller in layers

• mobilisation of a piling rig to undertake drilling and installation of piles

• installation of new retaining walls to the southern end of the site and around the new building footprint

• pouring of concrete foundation footings

• installation of new service connections for communications, power and water.

Temporary car parking

From 17 February 2021, access to the existing Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride has been closed to the public for the duration of construction.

A temporary car park will be available from Tuesday, 27 April 2021, for Park 'n' Ride commuters to use, located adjacent to the SA Districts Netball Association. It can be accessed via Atlantis Drive, Golden Grove, please view map below for details.

If you previously used the accessible car parking at the old Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride facility, please contact the project team directly using the contact details below to discuss alternative car parking options.

Bus services

To enable the safe construction of the new car park, Bus stop 62A west on The Grove Way has been temporarily relocated, approximately 50 metres north of its previous location.

Please be advised that bus routes C2X and A01 (City to Greenwith) will no longer be stopping at Bus Stop 62A west-side of The Grove Way, from Saturday, 8 May 2021. Instead, please board or exit at Bus Stop 62 The Grove Way, or Bus Stop 64 The Golden Way (see map below).

Bus stop 62A east-side of The Grove Way is still serviced by C2X and A01 (Greenwith to City).

This change is expected to continue until completion of the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride Project in early 2022.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Adelaide Metro Team on 1300 311 108.

Vegetation removal

The removal of vegetation is an unfortunate consequence of infrastructure projects, and all efforts are continuously made to reduce impacts, where practically possible. These impacts are managed in accordance with legislative requirements. Any required tree removals will be offset in accordance with the Department for Infrastructure and Transport’s Vegetation Removal Policy.

The project provides the opportunity to improve upon the existing amenity through the provision of new landscaping. The landscape design and final species palate will be finalised during detailed design, and will seek to improve biodiversity to the project by careful selection of trees and shrubs that are self-sustaining to avoid ongoing irrigation or regular replanting.
