Three intersections in the Adelaide Hills will be upgraded, including the busy Onkaparinga Valley Road intersection, as part of the road safety infrastructure program.
The majority of crashes at the intersection have been caused by vehicles either failing to stop, or stopping suddenly from the Woodside Road entry.
A proposed roundabout will create a safer environment for traffic moving through the intersection and particularly the frequent right turns between Woodside Road and Onkaparinga Valley Road.
Construction is expected to begin next year.
In addition signs will be upgraded and new linemarking will be trialled at the Cudlee Creek to Lobethal Road junction with Fox Creek Road, encouraging drivers to slow down on their approach.
Vehicle-activated signs will be trialled to alert drivers on the Riverview Road and Pfeiffer Road as they approach the Woodside-Nairne Road to ensure safer turns.
A new shared use bridge for cyclists and pedestrians has been completed, improving access and safety as part of the $160 million O-Bahn City Access Project.
Changes to the conditional registration scheme for Historic, Left Hand Drive and Street Rod vehicles start from 1 July 2017
Traffic lights will be upgraded at the intersection of South Road and Sir Donald Bradman Drive.
Safety will soon be improved at the Angle Vale Road intersection with Curtis Road and McGee Road at Penfield Gardens.
