Main North Road and Nottage Terrace Intersection Upgrade

About the project

The Australian and South Australian Governments have announced $19 million joint funding for the upgrade of the Main North Road and Nottage Terrace 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.

Main North Road is a key major traffic route, freight route and a high frequency public transport corridor. Nottage Terrace is a key major traffic and primary freight route. This intersection plays a vital role in moving traffic from the north east to the south, bypassing Adelaide’s CBD.

Historical crash data indicates 32 crashes recorded between 2013 and 2017, of which there were ten 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, with project completion expected in 2022.

What’s next?

A contract to undertake the detailed planning and design work that will identify the preferred option for upgrading the intersection was awarded to Jacobs 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 Jacobs 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).
