Magill, Portrush Roads Intersection Upgrade
About the project
The Australian and South Australian Governments have announced $98 million joint funding for the upgrade of the Magill and Portrush Roads intersection, with the cost 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 intersection of Portrush Road and Magill Road is part of the National Land Transport Network and forms part of the Outer Ring Route, which is a major traffic route and freight route.
The upgrade will:
- Improve travel times
- Improve safety for all users
- Improve network reliability
- Improve economic productivity
Community and stakeholder engagement forms an important part of this upgrade and as planning progresses there will be extensive consultation with land owners, businesses and residents to help inform the preferred concept and design.
Early works are planned to start in 2020, with project completion expected in 2023.
Community and stakeholder engagement are an important part of the planning process and DPTI will continue to work with residents, land owners and business owners as the preferred option is developed.
