Hampstead Road and Grand Junction Road Intersection upgrade
About the project
The Australian and South Australian Governments have announced $19 million joint funding for the upgrade of the Hampstead and Grand Junction Road 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.
The right turn movement from Grand Junction Road to Hampstead Road is a key freight movement and the existing single right turn lane causes problems due to the slow acceleration of heavy vehicles. There is a need for additional capacity on all approaches to the intersection and the need to provide additional capacity for this movement by duplicating the existing right turn lane.
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, following detailed planning and design through the second half of 2019.
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 to develop a preferred option.
