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 Roads 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
Early works are planned to start in 2020.
A contract to undertake the detailed planning and design work that will identify the preferred option for upgrading the intersection was awarded to GHD in September 2019. 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 GHD 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).
