Adelaide’s Mike Turtur Bikeway runs from the city centre to the popular seaside suburb of Glenelg along the land reserve of the famous Glenelg tram line.
Named after South Australia’s Olympic Gold Medallist and long-time Race Director of the Tour Down Under, the Mike Turtur Bikeway is equally popular with daily commuters and recreational cyclists with around 1,200 riders per day.
Until now, the weakest link in the chain has been at Goodwood Railway Station, where both cyclists and pedestrians currently have to walk through a winding, narrow maze of paths linking to a low tunnel under the railway station.
Making the announcement on 3rd June 2021, South Australian Premier Steven Marshal said, “The project which is set to begin in early 2022, will support 115 jobs.
“In addition to the overpass, we’re working with the City of Unley on a $2 million project to upgrade the bikeway from Musgrave Street to King William Road, at Wayville.”
