Findon Road Painted Median Scheme
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will improve safety for all road users along Findon Road by installing a painted median scheme. The project will provide safer crossing points for pedestrians, separate traffic, provide sheltered right turn lanes into side roads and reduce the risk of rear end collisions.
The project will include the following works along Findon Road, between Crittenden Road and Henley Beach Road:
- Installation of a painted median scheme, including right turn storage lanes
- Installation of pedestrian refuges at two locations
- Installation of part-time and full-time bike lanes
- Upgrades to lighting at various locations
- Relocation of some bus stops
Please note that parking times along Findon Road will change as a result of the installation of part time bike lanes.
Note that in relation to painted islands, road users may drive on or over a single continuous line surrounding a painted island for up to 50 metres:
- to allow the required room to safely overtake people riding bicycles
- to enter or leave a road
- to enter a turning lane that begins at the end of the painted island
- to park in angle parking on the opposite side of the road.
However, you must give way to any vehicle that is in the turning lane or entering the turning lane from the marked lane or line of traffic immediately to the left of the turning lane.
Community information sessions will be held for this project on Thursday 27 March from 6pm-8pm and on Friday 28 March from 12pm-2pm, at the Findon Community Centre.
This $260 000 project is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program.
