North-South Corridor

In reply to the Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (31 May 2022).

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Infrastructure and Transport has advised:

The 10.5-kilometre Torrens to Darlington (T2D) project is the most significant project ever planned in South Australia.

The Malinauskas Labor government committed to reviewing the Liberal’s flawed reference design, to make sure that the project provides the best possible outcomes and minimises community impacts and unnecessary cost for the South Australian taxpayer.

The initial findings of the departmental review have revealed the project is nowhere near as advanced as suggested by the previous government.

This government’s disappointment at the failures of the previous government cannot be overstated. Their four years of inaction and delay will cost all South Australians more time in traffic waiting for the completed north-south corridor to get them where they need to be.

Labor has a strong track record in delivering north-south corridor projects, not just talking about them. We look forward to delivering this critical project for South Australia.
