Goodwood, Springbank and Daws Road Intersection Upgrade

About the project

Goodwood Road is one of southern Adelaide’s major north-south arterial routes, with Springbank Road and Daws Road providing a key east-west connection.

On average more than 60,000 vehicles a day travel through this location, with travel time delays in peak periods. This may be further impacted upon completion of the Darlington Upgrade Project,

There have been 50 crashes in the past five years, including 20 casualty crashes.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will be upgrading the intersections of Springbank, Daws and Goodwood Road to improve safety and travel times for motorists.

Once complete, the upgrade will:

  • Improve connectivity for vulnerable users
  • Improve transport capacity
  • Improve safety for all users

Following community feedback, detailed costings and new data, a realigned four-way intersection will be delivered, rather than the previously planned 'staggered T' option.

The project is expected to cost $60 million, with early works expected to commence in the first quarter of 2020. Major construction is expected to commence late 2020 with project completion expected by end of 2021.

The successful tenderer for the design development of the Goodwood, Springbank and Daws Road Intersection Upgrade is Wallbridge Gilbert Aztec, who have partnered with Tonkin and KPMG. A tender for the delivery of the project is expected to be announced in late 2020.

The current proposed treatments for the new four-way intersection are:

  • Road widening on Goodwood Road to provide three through lanes southbound and a controlled left turn into Springbank Road
  • Road widening on Goodwood Road to provide dual right turn lanes onto Daws Road
  • Road realignment on Daws Road to provide two through lanes onto Springbank Road, and a controlled left turn onto Goodwood Road (northbound)
  • Road realignment on Daws Road to provide dual right turn lanes onto Goodwood road (southbound)
  • Road realignment on Springbank Road to provide two through lanes onto Daws Road, and dual right turn lanes onto Goodwood road (northbound)
  • Road realignment on Springbank Road to provide dual controlled left turn lanes onto Goodwood Road (southbound)
  • Extension of dual right turn lanes from Goodwood Road into Springbank Road
  • Road widening on Goodwood Road to allow for an additional through lane northbound, and a controlled left turn onto Daws Road
  • Upgraded pedestrian crossings within the intersection, including new pedestrian crossing and lights
  • New and upgraded pedestrian ramps and footpaths around the intersection
  • New and upgraded traffic signals and road lighting
  • Dedicated bicycle lanes on the approaches of the intersection and through the intersection
  • New kerb and gutter where road realignment and widening is occurring

What’s next?

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure will continue to liaise with the community as the preferred design is developed. All feedback and concerns will be considered as the project team continue through the design process to identify a solution that balances the needs of the project’s various stakeholders.

Have your say

As part of the projects early design and review process, DPTI held two information sessions to meet members of the community and to seek feedback regarding the proposed early design for the Goodwood, Springbank and Daws Road Intersection Upgrade project.

The information sessions were held on Wednesday, 23 October, between 5.30pm and 7.30pm and Saturday, 26 October, between 1.00pm and 3.00pm and were held at the Colonel Light Gardens RSL.

All feedback received from the community will be provided to the project team for review and consideration. Receiving this feedback from the community is important and will help inform the development of the design, with early works expected to commence in the first quarter of 2020 and major construction expected to commence late 2020 with project completion expected by end of 2021.

If you were unable to attend one of the information sessions but have some feedback you would like to submit, please visit  the Registration, Feedback and Suggestions page or email dpti.communityrelations@sa.gov.au.
