Major construction works for the upgrade of Main South Road, between Old Coach Road and Malpas Road, are now complete.
The safety driven project was conducted to reduce the number and severity of serious and minor injury crashes at this location.
This section of Main South Road, between Old Coach Road and Malpas Road, has annual average daily traffic of approximately 17,900 vehicles per day and the upgrade will support future increases in road use and improve traffic flow.
The project has delivered the following safety improvements:
Finishing works, including final lighting and landscaping, are currently taking place and are expected to be completed mid-year.
During the final works, all roads will remain open to traffic with a 25 km/h speed restriction in place while workers are on site.
Lane and other speed restrictions may apply subject to on site conditions and road users are requested to observe signage and follow the advice of traffic management staff.

The South Australian Registrar of Motor Vehicles will refuse the registration of light vehicles fitted with defective Takata ‘Alpha’ type airbag inflators from 1 November 2018 until they are rectified to ensure the safety of all road users.
Older vehicles are over-represented in fatal vehicle crashes and the average age of a vehicle involved in a fatality crash is increasing.
Preliminary works for the upgrade of the Main North Road intersection with Dalkeith Road and Smith Road are currently underway, with Telstra early works to commence from Wednesday 5 September.
Road users are advised the Anzac Highway/Brighton Road/Tapleys Hill Road intersection will be closed to all traffic for resurfacing works on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights, 13 – 15 August, between 9pm and 6am. Speed and land restrictions will also be in place between 7pm-9pm prior to the full closure.
