Black spots will be upgraded as part of a program of road safety improvements across the Adelaide metropolitan area in 2016-17.
The $9.5 million program will fund treatments such as the installation of new traffic signals, intersection upgrades and safety barriers at priority locations across Adelaide.
North East Road/Nottage Terrace at Gilberton is among the intersections targeted for upgrade, with $2 million allocated to install an additional right turn lane on North East Road and right turn signals on Stephen Terrace and Nottage Terrace.
A new $1.2 million signalised intersection in Pasadena, at the intersection of Fiveash Drive and Day Drive, will improve traffic flow and safety for all road users.
A painted median scheme on Springbank Road, between Goodwood Road and Belair Road, will improve safety for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians while maintaining traffic flow.
Roads with a high motorcycle crash rate will also continue to be targeted for safety improvements to help reduce motorcycle rider deaths and injuries.
The road safety upgrades are part of the State Government’s commitment to reducing deaths and injuries on South Australian roads.
