July 19 Project Update - Airport Terminal Expansion

A bold vision was recently unveiled which includes opening a Richmond Road entrance for taxis and freight to ease congestion on Sir Donald Bradman Drive and Airport Road. Studies show taxis represent 30% of traffic on Sir Donald Bradman Drive during morning peak hour.

A public consultation on the Adelaide Airport’s 8 year Masterplan commences in July 2019, and should be signed off by the Federal Transport Minister in April 2020.
