Blythewood Road Pedestrian Crossing and Painted Median Project
The South Australian Government announced the $400,000 upgrade of the existing pedestrian crossing on Blythewood Road, adjacent Scotch College, to a pedestrian actuated (push button) crossing.
A painted median scheme will also be installed On Blythewood Road, between Belair Road and Thorpe Street, which will separate traffic and provide sheltered right turn lanes into side roads, reducing the risk of collisions.
In order to safely accommodate the painted median scheme and sheltered right turn lanes, it will be necessary to remove on-street parking.
Following completion of the works, a full-time bike lane will operate on the northern side of Blythewood Road and a part-time bike lane will operate on the southern side of Blythewood Road during peak hours.
Works will occur between 9am and 4pm weekdays and speed and lane restrictions will be in place. Road users are advised to follow the direction of traffic management staff and observe signage.
The existing Blythewood Road pedestrian crossing will be closed during construction and pedestrians will be redirected to an alternative crossing location.
To help safeguard the DPTI project team and the community, we have implemented measures to manage the risks of, and our response to, contracting COVID-19.
These include but are not limited to, increased personal hygiene practices and limiting face-to-face contact.
The project team will provide construction updates and work notifications via social media, letterbox drops, emails and the Project website. We are also available to speak via telephone (1300 794 880).
There will be no planned community events or information sessions until further notice.
Construction is expected to commence mid-April and be completed in May, weather permitting.
