O-Bahn City Access Project officially opens


The $160 million O-Bahn City Access Project, which will improve travel for all vehicles in the city’s East End, has been officially opened at a community day.

Buses began using the 670-metre tunnel today, saving valuable time for passengers and improving the reliability of O-Bahn services.

On average more than 1,000 buses will use the tunnel each weekday, improving travel times for other road users by freeing up valuable space on the Inner Ring Route.

Yesterday’s Community Open Day gave people a chance to view the impressive engineering works of the completed tunnel first-hand before buses begin to use it exclusively.

The O-Bahn City Access Project has supported 450 jobs, providing employment to South Australians in the construction, professional and technical services industries, and more than $94 million of contracts have been awarded to local South Australian businesses.
