Bakewell Underpass

The new Bakewell underpass will consists of:

  • two traffic lanes in each direction separated by a median
  • on-road bicycle lanes (1.8 metres) on each side of the road
  • a wide shared use path (3.15 metres wide) on the southern side at a higher level than the road. This path is designed to cater for pedestrians, people with a disability and recreational cyclists, and is connected to a network of paths around the area.

Two bridges span the underpass carrying road traffic along James Congdon Drive and East Terrace, and rail traffic on the TransAdelaide metropolitan tracks and the national Australian Rail Track Corporation freight track. Both bridges cater for pedestrian and cyclist traffic.

Engineering Surveys has been involved with all stages of construction, using 'one-man' robotic total stations to great effect.
