A $22 million investment has been released by the South Australian Government for road safety infrastructure improvements across Adelaide’s metropolitan area.
Nine black spots will be upgraded as part of this project, with works to include new traffic signals, intersection upgrades and roundabouts.
“We are committed to improving road infrastructure right across the State and this $22 million investment in the metropolitan roads will go a long way towards increasing safety, particularly at black spot locations,” Road Safety Minister Chris Picton said.
New traffic signals that will be installed at various intersections will help improve safety for all drivers. Intersections that will see new traffic signals include:
“I strongly welcome the upgrade for the Dalkeith and Main North Road intersection, which will include traffic lights to fully control all through and right hand movements both into and out of Main North, along with the construction of left hand slip lanes,”
Craigmore will see a new roundabout at the intersection of Yorktown Road and Blair Park Drive, which will improve road safety for families attending Craigmore South Primary School and Hope Christian College. The roundabout will also boost safety for all other road users in the area.
In partnership with the State Government, local Councils will be contributing about $400,000 to upgrade three black spots at:
- Morphett Street and Gouger Street intersection in Adelaide
- Harvey Road and Ridley Road intersection in Craigmore
- Morphett Road and Stonehouse Avenue intersection in Camden Park
