T2D funding locked in

14 February 2022

Funding for the entire Torrens to Darlington (T2D) Project has been confirmed, with the Federal Government announcing an additional $2.26 billion of Commonwealth investment for Stage 2 of the job-creating motorway.

The $9.9 billion project is jointly funded by the Australian and South Australian governments on a 50:50 basis.

The T2D Project is the final section of the North-South Corridor and, once complete, will deliver 78km of non-stop travel between Gawler and Old Noarlunga.

The 10.5km T2D – almost 7km of which will be two sets of twin tunnels – will support more than 4,900 jobs during peak construction, allow motorists to bypass 21 sets of traffic lights, and improve travel times by about 20 minutes to deliver a nine-minute journey between the River Torrens and Darlington.

Other benefits include:

  • providing better access to travel gateways, including Adelaide Airport, the Port of Adelaide and the national highway network;
  • preserving sites of cultural importance; and
  • creating urban renewal opportunities for local businesses and residents through a dedicated $125 million City Shaping Program.
