General Information:

Northern Expressway is a 4-lane motorway standard route linking Port Wakefield Rd (A1) with Gawler Bypass (formerly A52, now A20). The interchanges and bridges along the expressway were all named after famous battles in which Australian forces were involved in, such as Long Tan, Kokoda, Tobruk, Kapyong and Hamel. In November 2013, one year after the death of South Australian author and journalist Max Fatchen, the Northern Expressway was dual named "Fatchen Northern Expressway" in his honour. 2 3
