Project overview

The Australian and South Australian governments have committed $25 million for the design and construction of the Mike Turtur Bikeway Overpass Project.

The Public Transport Projects Alliance (PTP Alliance) will undertake the planning and design for this project on behalf of the Department for Infrastructure and Transport.

The Mike Turtur Bikeway Overpass Project involves the construction of a Shared Use Path over the rail corridor at Goodwood to improve connectivity and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

Timelines

The PTP Alliance is currently undertaking detailed investigations, planning and design work, which are required before construction begins.

Engagement with key stakeholders and the community will form an important component across the life of the project. In the coming months we will be providing opportunities to learn more about the project and to give feedback.

A concept design is currently being developed.

Site investigation works will commence from mid-October 2021 Construction works will begin in 2022, with completion expected in 2023, weather permitting.

Upcoming works

Site investigation works

Site investigation works within Forestville Reserve and Railway Terrace North (between Devon Street North and the rail corridor) will commence on Monday, 18 October for up to three weeks. The works will occur Monday to Friday 7:30am to 5pm and involve the use of a truck mounted drilling rig.

Some temporary pedestrian and cyclist detours will be in place around the works site and pedestrians and cyclists are advised to follow directional signage. Please see the maps over the page for pedestrian and cyclist detours.

Some noise disturbance can be expected at times while these works are completed, however the work will be managed to minimise disturbance to nearby residents and businesses as much as practically possible.

Access to Goodwood Railway Station will be maintained at all times and there will be no change to public transport services.

Detours for pedestrians and cyclist during these works

Detours for pedestrians and cyclists will be in place at times during the works.

Within the Forestville Reserve the works will initially require the closure of the pedestrian tram underpass near Goodwood Railway Station.

Once the works are completed in the above location the pedestrian tram underpass near Brownhill Creek will be closed, please click here to view the notification and maps.

Please follow the directional signage on site.
