Fullarton Road Upgrade Complete
11 May 2015
Safety and efficiency has been improved for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians with the completion of the Fullarton Road upgrade, from Magill Road to Beulah Road, Kent Town.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure has worked closely with the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, local businesses and residents on these improvements.
Fullarton Road between Magill Road to Beulah Road has now been upgraded with:
- new 24 hour bicycle lanes on both sides of Fullarton Road with designated bicycle
- removal of the right turn from Beulah Road into Fullarton Road and installation of a cyclist/pedestrian refuge on Fullarton Road, to provide safer crossing between Beulah Road and Rundle Street
- resurfacing of Fullarton Road
These improvements complement earlier works along Fullarton Road, which included:
- widening of the western side of Fullarton Road (within the existing road reserve area) and formalising two lanes of traffic
- changes to traffic signal sequencing at the Fullarton Road, Payneham Road, Magill Road and North Terrace intersection, as well as increasing the length of the right turn lane from Fullarton Road into Magill Road and Payneham Road
- installation of cyclist/pedestrian refuges on Fullarton Road at the King William Street
junction and Grenfell Street junction.
These works are funded by the State Government's Transport Systems Responsiveness
Program and form part of the $2.4 million investment to upgrade Fullarton Road.
