Glen Osmond and Fullarton Roads Intersection Upgrade
About the project
The Australian and South Australian Governments have announced $35 million joint funding for the upgrade of the Glen Osmond Road and Fullarton Road intersection, with the costs 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.
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.
Early works are planned to start in 2020, with project completion expected in 2022.
A contract to undertake the detailed planning and design work that will identify the preferred option for upgrading the intersection was awarded to Jacobs in September 2019. 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 Jacobs 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).
