Penfolds/St Bernards/Newton/Darley

Future Road Management in Adelaide's East

A number of solutions are proposed to address safety and traffic flow issues on Penfold - St Bernard’s - Newton - Darley Roads between Wattle Park and Paradise.

A draft Road Management Plan (RMP) by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) was released for public comment in October 2011 as part of responsible future transport planning undertaken by the department.

The draft Plan looked at how the roads are operating and the needs of people who use, live or work alongside them.

The draft RMP was the result of a detailed research study which included site auditing and observations, analysis of crash data and traffic flow statistics and preliminary discussions with the affected Councils – Campbelltown and Burnside.

The draft Plan provided an overall view of the operational and safety issues of Penfold Road, St Bernard’s Road, Newton Road and Darley Road.

DPTI sought public comment on the proposals contained in the Plan.  Although the proposed treatments are currently unfunded, the Plan will be used as a reference when setting state-wide funding priorities and seeking funding for their implementation.

Following receipt of the feedback, DPTI has now finalised the plan and reviewed recommendations where appropriate.
