Intelligent Traffic System Projects
Worth a staggering $842 million. The South Road Superway Project is South Australia’s most complex engineering road construction project to date. The South Road Superway Project is a stage two of the north-south transport corridor upgrade delivering a 4.8 km non-stop corridor comprising of a 2.8 km elevated roadway connecting the Port River Expressway to Regency Road.
During this project, Naveesh was involved in the construction of Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) infrastructure. He was working solely on its foundation, including Conduit and pit installation, light pole footing, traffic signal footings and footings for off alignment works.

Installation Traffic Signal on the main intersections.
Installation of cable trays, light poles, signage, and gantries on the elevated structure.
Installation of power and communication cabling on the main alignment and elevated structure to connect with the Signage – Gantries, VMS and CMS Signs and ITS devices – Detectors, Loops, Camera and other devices.
