Fullarton Road and Cross Road Intersection Upgrade
About the project
The Australian and South Australian Governments have announced $61 million joint funding for the upgrade of the Fullarton and Cross Roads Intersection, with costs to be shared equally.
The Australian Government commitment is part of the Commonwealth Urban Congestion Fund. The State Government’s contribution addresses recommendations of the State Government’s Keeping Metro Traffic Moving Report. The report identifies this intersection as a priority location for treatments that address road congestion and keep traffic flowing.
Cross Road and Fullarton Road are both important commuter routes, serving traffic to and from the Mitcham Hills area and the South Eastern Freeway.
Cross Road forms part of Adelaide’s Outer Ring Route (ORR) which plays a key role in moving Adelaide traffic efficiently and safely. The ORR is also a key freight route connecting to export and import gateways and intermodal terminals.
Approximately 60,000 vehicles travel through the Cross and Fullarton Roads intersection each day and it currently experiences travel time delays in peak periods.
Historical crash data indicates 44 crashes recorded between 2013 and 2017, of which there were 19 casualty crashes.
The upgrade will:
- improve travel times
- improve safety for all users
- improve network reliability
- improve economic productivity.
Early works are planned to start in 2020.

DPTI COVID-19 Response
The Department will continue to tailor community engagement opportunities in line with the latest COVID-19 advice from health authorities.
Face-to-face engagement opportunities may be restricted and we will continue to be guided by the advice of health authorities, with the health and safety of our stakeholders always our highest priority.
Engagement with community and industry is crucial and we will facilitate information sessions as much as possible to enable face to face engagement. It is important to assist in managing these events that you register as requested to enable physical distancing as much as possible.
Planning study and design development: key considerations
Key considerations for the planning study and design development will include:
- stakeholder and community input and consideration of the needs of the local university, schools, residents and businesses including safe access, carparking and managing construction impacts
- road widening to improve safety and capacity of the intersection
- right hand turning solutions at the intersection
- improving travel times to reduce congestion
- provision of safer pedestrian crossings
- consideration of bus stops and active transport opportunities
- consideration of environmental aspects including surrounding vegetation and heritage aspects.
The contract for the planning study and design development has been awarded to the Cross Roads Team, comprising Jacobs Group (Australia) Pty. Ltd. in partnership with WSP (Australia).
It is anticipated that this detailed planning and design work will conclude in 2020.
Community and stakeholder engagement forms an important part of the planning process. DPTI and the Cross Roads Team will engage with residents, land owners, business owners and other stakeholders as the preferred option is developed. We encourage you to have your say while the planning process is underway (see our contact details below).
Online survey now closed
Thank you to everyone that completed a survey and provided feedback to illustrate how you use the intersection, your experience with traffic congestion, access, active transport, safety and public transport. The information gathered from this survey will help inform the concept design.
The Concept Design is still under development. Once finalised, the Concept Design will be made publicly available for comment and the community will be notified.
We have heard the level of community concern about the retention of heritage in the area, particularly in relation to the State Heritage Listed Waite Arboretum and Urrbrae House Gatehouse (or ‘Lodge’).
DPTI is conducting further investigations to inform the development of a preferred concept design. This will include more detailed surveys and investigations on heritage and vegetation.
In the coming weeks, there will be activity and personnel conducting surveys in the area.
Please note that these are investigations only. They are being conducted to look at options to mitigate heritage and vegetation impacts as much as possible.
DPTI continues to work with the University of Adelaide, Heritage SA and other key stakeholders to deliver the best outcome for the project and community on this project.
