The South Australian Government is delivering a $33 million upgrade of Flagstaff Road between Hyland Avenue and Bonneyview Road. The works are hoped to improve road safety and bust traffic congestion.
The road goes down to three lanes for 800 metres of the 3.3 kilometre length between Hyland Avenue and Bonneyview Road. This project will see a fourth lane built to ensure the entire stretch of road is a permanent two-way dual carriageway.
Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll said the government is delivering on another key election commitment for people in the Southern Suburbs and Adelaide foot hills.
“Flagstaff Road is a major arterial road used by over 20,000 motorists every day to commute to work, home or other parts of the city.”
“It’s one of many roads and intersections we’re upgrading around Adelaide and will also compliment the massive Darlington Upgrade that is soon to be completed creating a massive time saving for people living in our southern suburbs.”
Liberal Member for Davenport Steve Murray said the local community would be pleased to see progress on a project that they have been calling for over the last decade or more.
“At the moment the flow on the centre lane is reversed daily to cope with peak-hour traffic in the mornings and evenings which can cause confusion and is a real safety concern,” Mr. Murray said.
Early works are set to start in early 2021 with major construction following mid-year.
