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.
Planning study and design development: key considerations
Key considerations for the planning study and design development will include:
- stakeholder and community input and consideration of the needs of businesses and residents including safe access, carparking and managing construction impacts
- road widening to improve safety and capacity of the intersection
- right hand turning solutions at the intersection
- improving travel times to reduce congestion
- provision of safer pedestrian crossings
- consideration of bus stops and active transport opportunities
- consideration of environmental aspects including surrounding vegetation and heritage aspects.
The contract for the planning study and design development has been awarded to the Cross Roads Team, comprising Jacobs Group (Australia) Pty Ltd in partnership with WSP (Australia).
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 the Cross Roads Team 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).
We want to understand how you use the intersection, your experience with traffic congestion, access, active transport, safety and public transport. The information gathered from this survey will help inform the concept design.

Surveys close end of January 2020.
Community information sessions
In early 2020, we will hold community information sessions to provide opportunities to speak with members of the project team, view the proposed concept design and provide feedback.
