Installation of a Signalised Bicycle and Pedestrian Crossing (Cross Road/ Rugby Street, Kingswood)

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

21 March 2016

Safety will soon be improved for cyclists and pedestrians on Cross Road at the junction with Rugby Street, Kingswood, with the installation of a signalised bicycle and pedestrian crossing.

This safety upgrade is a key element of the Belair - City Bikeway – a partnership between the State Government, Adelaide City Council and City of Unley to connect the Frome Street Bikeway to Belair.

Works will commence today (Monday 21 March 2016) and are expected to be completed by the end of June 2016, weather permitting.

To minimise traffic impacts, construction work will be undertaken as a combination of day and night works. Night works will be managed to minimise disturbance to the local community as much as possible and adjacent residents will be provided with advance notice.

Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained throughout the works.

Temporary lane and speed restrictions will apply during construction and road users are asked to use extra caution when workers are on site.

The $300 000 project is funded by the State Government’s Black Spot Program.

The Department thanks road users for their patience and cooperation while these important safety works are undertaken.
