O-Bahn City Access Project Bus Stop Changes

As part of the O-Bahn Tunnel project, the State Government are making changes to existing bus stop locations and design, and with City of Adelaide, altering parking and loading zones along the Currie-Grenfell Street corridor to improve how the street is used.

What is happening along Currie and Grenfell Street?

Over 2,400 buses travel through the Currie-Grenfell Street corridor each day and this is expected to increase. Some bus routes are currently stopping up to eight times along the corridor with some stops only 120 metres apart.

See the Currie-Grenfell Street bus stop works schedule for stop closures and boarding changes after 7.30pm

This project plans to resolve this issue by:

  • Evenly spacing bus stops along the corridor to improve travel time
  • Group bus stops to create new interchange zones and categorise routes by their direction of travel
  • Improved wayfinding and signage
  • Installation of digital real time bus stops placed at key destinations

Along the Currie-Grenfell Street corridor, the following changes will happen:

Why are these changes happening?

The redeveloped Adelaide Oval, increase in residential population, the city tram extension on North Terrace, the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and growth in public transport passenger numbers has generated a need to improve Adelaide's major public transport corridor, Currie-Grenfell Street.

These improvements will provide an enhanced travel experience for customers on O-Bahn services, as well as Adelaide Metro buses to the Adelaide Hills and eastern and western suburbs.

When are the changes happening?

Construction works along the corridor are scheduled to commence in September 2017 and will be completed to coincide with the opening of the O-Bahn Tunnel in late 2017.

Works will commence at the east end of Grenfell Street and progress to the west end of Currie Street.

Construction will be undertaken as a combination of day and night works. Roads will remain open to traffic with a 25km/h speed restriction in place when workers are on site. Lane and other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.

Every effort will be made to minimise impact to pedestrians and road users and access to properties will be maintained throughout works.
