Public transport

Construction works will affect some bus services that normally use the expressway, interchanges and surrounding roads and bridges. The project team is making every effort to minimise the disruption by staging closures, arranging alternative routes and giving advance notice of service interruptions.

The following bus services are likely to experience extra travel time, particularly during peak periods, before 9.30am and after 3.30pm, Monday to Friday:

> T748, 750, 751, 751W - between the Beach Road interchange and the southern exit at Old Noarlunga

> 721X, T721, T721X, 722X, T722, 723X - between the Reynella interchange and Bedford Park junction with Main South Road.

Other bus services that use bridges and roads surrounding the Southern Expressway will be affected by construction works as shown in the table below. The closure of bridges or roads will be carefully staged to provide buses alternative routes and minimise inconvenience.

Panalatinga / Main South Road, Reynella bus services

The Main South Road, Reynella interchange will be modified to service a two-way road, including modifications at the intersection of Panalatinga Road / Main South Road to provide:

  • two lanes plus a left-turn bus lane for city-bound traffic to the expressway from Panalatinga Road
  • bus lane priority with a B Signal
  • new bus stop locations on the western and eastern side of Panalatinga Road. This will provide improved pedestrian links from the Panalatinga Park and Ride to the nearby bus stops.
