Main North Road, Kings and McIntyre Roads Intersection Upgrade
About the project
The Australian and South Australian Governments have announced $13 million joint funding for the upgrade of the Main North Road, Kings and McIntyre 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 intersection of Main North Road, Kings and McIntyre Road is a major traffic and freight route. The current intersection is operating at capacity in peak periods, with signal phasing and traffic lanes fully utilised creating congestion and causing safety risks.
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.
Detailed planning and design work will be undertaken to ascertain the preferred design. 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.
Early works are planned to start in 2020, following detailed planning and design through the second half of 2019.
Detailed planning and design work will be undertaken to ascertain the best option to upgrade this intersection.
