road currently under construction at several levels to increase traffic

The South Australian Government has sought community and stakeholder feedback on $16 million in potential road infrastructure projects, identified in its recent planning studies.

The projects include road, intersection and junction upgrades in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, which were election commitments under the recently-elected South Australian Government.

Each of these projects contains a planning study or traffic investigation component, which will be informed by community feedback. They include:

  • Wynn Vale Drive upgrades: $7 million to plan, design and construct upgrades to the junction of Wynn Vale Drive and Bridge Road (and plan for future upgrades at Wynn Vale Drive and The Golden Way), in Gulfview Heights and Wynn Vale

  • Northern Suburbs local roads initiative: $5 million to plan, design and construct upgrades to The Grove Way junctions with Canterbury Drive, Green Valley Drive and Atlantis Drive, and the junction of Main North Road and Target Hill Road, all located in Salisbury Heights or Golden Grove

  • John Rice Avenue and Haydown Road junction upgrade: $1.5 million to plan, design and construct a signalised intersection and pedestrian crossing at this Elizabeth Vale intersection

  • Yorktown Road and Adams Road roundabout: $1.5 million to plan, design and construct a roundabout at this intersection in Craigmore

  • Community led road management plan for Nelson Road: $300,000 to conduct a study to identify initiatives to reduce congestion and improve safety on Nelson Road, from Wright Road to McIntyre Road

  • Curtis Road and Dalkeith Road planning study: $250,000 for a planning study to inform future infrastructure requirements for Curtis and Dalkeith Roads in the Playford City and Gawler council areas

  • Main North Road and Regency Road intersection planning study: $250,000 to further investigate traffic issues at and around the intersection of Main North and Regency roads, in Prospect, Enfield and Sefton Park

  • Mawson Lakes Local Area Plan: $100,000 to review local accessibility in the vicinity of the Mawson Lakes Interchange, and analyse options for addressing these problems

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport will commence engagement activities from the14 November, to allow community members to have their say on the planning studies and traffic investigations informing seven of the above projects. 

Community engagement for the Mawson Lakes Local Area Plan, including a community survey and face-to-face activities, will begin in 2023.

The South Australian Government has also funded and partnered with the City of Playford to deliver a traffic management plan at Blake’s Crossing. The first round of consultation for this project is currently underway, with a survey aimed at understanding local residents’ traffic experiences open until 1 December.

Community and stakeholder engagement is vital to the successful design and delivery of all these projects, which are all in varying stages of procurement and development.
