This assessment brief outlines the South Australian Government's plan to construct a 15.6 kilometre road (the Northern Connector) between Port Adelaide and the Northern Expressway. The Northern Connector will form part of an intended non-stop north-south corridor that will improve freight access, link the port to employment hubs and the resource production regions of South Australia and alleviate congestion and remove freight vehicles from the existing Port Wakefield Road. The South Australian Government is seeking $552 million in Commonwealth funding for the project.

The Office of the Infrastructure Coordinator recommended that the project be included on the 2013 Infrastructure Priority List at Threshold, with conditions.
