Gawler East Link Road



Project Overview

The $59.97 million, Gawler East Link Road will provide local traffic with direct access to Main North Road without travelling through the Gawler Town Centre, reducing travel times, reducing the likelihood of crashes and minimising the vehicle emissions

caused by travel delays.

The project will provide flexibility for future growth of population, as well as allow full development of Gawler East. It will support economic activity in Gawler and enhance connectivity between current and future developments, commercial and school precincts, and create approximately 110 local construction employment opportunities through the life of the project in line with SA’s Industry Participation Policy.



The benefits of the GELR will include:

  • direct access for commuters to Main North Road without needing to travel through the Gawler Town Centre;
  • reduction in congestion and travel times on the local road network;
  • less likelihood of crashes in the Gawler Township;
  • reduction of vehicle emissions caused by travel delays;
  • creates access for potential future extensions off the link road.
