Safety Upgrade for a Salisbury Highway Intersection
12 May 2015
Work will begin today on a $130,000 safety upgrade to traffic signals at the Salisbury Highway intersection with Waterloo Corner Road and Park Terrace in Salisbury.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure has identified a number of signalised intersections and junctions across Adelaide that will be upgraded to reduce the number of rear end crashes and improve safety.
The project involves the construction of a second left turn lane from Park Terrace into Salisbury Highway as well as traffic signal control for left turns from Park Terrace and Waterloo Corner Road into Salisbury Highway.
In addition, the introduction of a pedestrian crossing phase at the left turn traffic signals from Park Terrace into Salisbury Highway will provide safer access.
Works are funded through the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program.
Works are expected to take approximately three weeks to complete, weather permitting.
Temporary lane and speed restrictions will apply during construction and motorists are asked to use extra caution when workers are on site.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important works are undertaken.
