The year is 2031 – crowding & congestion on Adelaide roads

Infrastructure Australia has recently released public transport and traffic projections for 2031. It’s an interesting read that supports our calls to expand Adelaide’s bus network and better integrate public transport structures.

Some of the predictions:

  • Drivers on Adelaide’s most used roads will spend around 60% of their trip in congested traffic.
  • Our buses will be 31% busier.
  • The annual cost of road congestion (including lost productivity) to hit $2.6 billion.
  • Many of Adelaide’s roads will be operating over their design capacity.
