Glen Osmond and Fullarton Roads Intersection Upgrade
About the project
The Australian and South Australian Governments have announced $35 million funding for the upgrade of the intersection of Glen Osmond and Fullarton Roads, with the costs shared equally.
The Australian Government commitment is part of its 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.
Glen Osmond Road is a key major traffic route, primary freight route and a priority public transport corridor. Fullarton Road is a key major traffic route, primary freight route and a high frequency public transport corridor.
Approximately 55,000 vehicles pass through the intersection daily. Historical crash data for this intersection indicates 34 crashes recorded between 2013 and 2017, of which there were 11 casualty crashes.
The upgrade will:
- Improve travel times
- Improve safety for all users
- Improve network reliability
- Improve economic productivity
Community and stakeholder engagement forms an important part of this upgrade and as planning progresses there will be extensive consultation with land owners, businesses and residents to help inform the preferred concept and design.
Early works are planned to start in 2020, with project completion expected in 2022.
Detailed planning and design work will be undertaken to ascertain the best option to upgrade this intersection. Community and stakeholder engagement are an important part of the planning process and DPTI will continue to work with residents, land owners and business owners as the preferred option is developed.
