Torrens Transit would like to advise that during mid February 2020 (exact times and dates below), a number of bus services will be DETOURED as a result of road closures in the east end of the city and inner eastern suburbs for the 2020 ‘Superloop Adelaide 500’ motor racing event. The road closures and bus route detours will be similar to last year as follows:

 

BUS ROUTES H20-H22-H23-H24 which normally travel to and from the city via Bartels Road and Flinders Street Kent Town to The Parade, will be detoured via Rundle Road, Rundle Street Kent Town and Fullarton Road to The Parade. This detour will apply from 10.00am Monday 17 February until 5.00pm Monday 24 February 2020, and will apply to buses travelling in both directions, (to and from the city). Normal bus stops in Flinders Street Kent Town and Bartels Road, also Stop 5 The Parade (city-bound side) will NOT be serviced, however temporary bus stops will be in place in Fullarton Road and Rundle Street Kent Town (along the temporary detour route). All other normal bus stops will be serviced.

 

BUS ROUTES 141-142-144 and ALL SCHOOL BUSES which normally travel to and from the city via Dequetteville Terrace, will be detoured via Rundle Road, Rundle Street Kent Town and Fullarton Road to the corner of Kensington Road / Fullarton Road (Britannia roundabout).
