Tapa Martinthi Yala Shared Use Path – Second Section Now Open
The second section of the Tapa Martinthi Yala Shared Use Path which runs alongside the Northern Connector motorway has now opened. This means people are now able to ride their bike, or walk, from Gawler to Port Adelaide (all off road).
The final section of the Tapa Martinthi Yala, which is expected to open in the coming weeks will link into the Gawler Greenway project allowing people to ride quieter streets into the Adelaide CBD.
Local residents can access the Tapa Martinthi Yala northern section (to Gawler) at the Bolivar Rd/Port Wakefield Rd intersection and the Southern section via the Little Para River Trail behind Globe Derby.
About the Path:
Tapa Martinthi Yala means ‘Pathway to embrace today’ in Kaurna.
The opening of the northern section meant that people can now currently walk or ride their bike from Salisbury to Gawler, all off road by utilising the Little Para River Trail, Tapa Martinthi Yala shared use path and the Stuart O’Grady Bikeway (which runs alongside the Northern Expressway).
Meanwhile, the southern section of the new pathway, Globe Derby to the South Road, Port River expressway junction, means people will be able to ride their bike from Salisbury or Mawson Lakes to Port Adelaide (all off road). The Tapa Martinthi Yala links in to a new shared path coming out of Port Adelaide and the two joining up at the South Road / Port River Expressway interchange.
The Tapa Martinthi Yala will also link into the Gawler Greenway project which will open in coming weeks.
Access is via Bolivar Rd/Port Wakefield Rd intersection (Northern section) or Little Para River Trail behind Globe Derby (Southern section)
