Stage one of South Australia’s $20 million Golden Grove Road upgrade has been awarded.
Civil & Allied Technical Construction won the contract to deliver the project
The Tea Tree Gully Council voted unanimously to honour their pre-state election commitment to provide funding to help deliver local government infrastructure as part of this project, including footpaths and stormwater infrastructure.
The South Australian Government maintain it is delivering on its election commitment to upgrade the 3.4km section of Golden Grove Road between One Tree Hill Road and Park Lake Drive.
The project will be delivered in two stages and is expected to support local jobs over the life of the project, with Stage One works to occur between One Tree Hill Road to Kunzea Way.
Main construction works for Stage One, are scheduled to commence late 2019, and be completed in mid-2020.
“I welcome the council’s decision to put petty politics aside, deliver on its pre-state election promise and partner with the Marshall Government to deliver this important road upgrade,” South Australian Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government, Stephan Knoll, said.
“Importantly for the local community, the majority of council decided that fixing Golden Grove Road was the right thing to do and they voted to honour their pre-election promise.
“The Marshall Government is now focused on getting the job done and fixing Golden Grove Road as soon as possible.”
Member for King Paula Luethen said the works will include the construction of a new roundabout at the junction of Golden Grove Road and Hancock Road, sheltered right turn lanes at most unsignalised junctions, indented bus bays, and on-road bike lanes in each direction as well as improved pedestrian facilities.
“The local community will be ecstatic that the council has delivered on their pre-election promise and is now partnering with the Marshall Government to fix Golden Grove Road,” Ms Luethen said.
“This upgrade will improve safety and traffic flow on Golden Grove Road helping motorists to get home faster and safer.”
