Major intersection upgrade

29 April 2015

Works to improve right-turn lanes at the intersection of North East Road and Grand Junction Road have started.

Road Safety Minister Tony Piccolo said the works include extending the right-turn lanes on both North East Road and Grand Junction Road, and upgrading the traffic signals to fully control right-turn movements.

“In December last year I announced that $2.8 million would be invested to upgrade right-turn lanes 12 key intersections across metropolitan Adelaide,” Mr Piccolo said.

“This is a very busy intersection which has been the site of a high number of crashes. Between 2008 and 2013 there were a total of 120 crashes at this intersection, including 37 casualty crashes. Whilst they are all not right-turn crashes, this upgrade will potentially reduce the crash rate.”

The improvements are funded by the Motor Accident Commission’s (MAC) Road Safety Infrastructure Fund.

MAC CEO Aaron Chia said the $270 000 investment at this location would improve safety for motorists.

“Right-turns at intersections are a more complicated manoeuvre for drivers. This upgrade will mean a safer environment for those turning right onto Grand Junction or North East Road,” Mr Chia said.

Construction work will occur between 9.00 am and 4.00 pm, Monday to Friday. Speed restrictions will be in place and motorists are asked to use extra caution when driving through the area. The works are expected to be completed by the end of May 2015, weather permitting.
