21 Intersections Road Safety Project, McLaren Vale

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Roads in the McLaren Vale region are set to become safer for visitors and locals alike, with safety improvements being considered for 21 intersections.

The State Government is working collaboratively with the City of Onkaparinga to review the proposed treatments following Council’s 2021 intersection audit and advocacy efforts, and subsequent $4.2 million State Government election commitment from Member for Mawson, Leon Bignell.

The locations, proposed treatments and project timing were identified during the audit and may use innovative solutions to reduce the potential for crashes. Follow the link to view a map of the intersections.

A compact roundabout, the first of its kind to be investigated in South Australia, is being considered for the intersection of Chalk Hill Road, Olivers Road and Field Street. This was identified as the highest-risk site of the 21 intersections.

If deemed appropriate, it will combine the safety benefits of a roundabout with raised platforms to slow vehicles down as they approach the intersection. It is also likely to be less costly to build than a conventional roundabout due to its smaller footprint.

Follow the links to view information on the treatments being considered:

Both the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) and the City of Onkaparinga have individual and shared responsibility for roads in the area, with the DIT responsible for roads such as Main and Aldinga Roads, while council is responsible for adjoining local roads.

Designs are expected to be completed in 2023, with upgrades anticipated to be completed by June 2024.

SEEKING YOUR KNOWLEDGE

The locations, proposed treatments and project timing have been identified via a detailed review of each individual site conducted by technical staff from DIT and Council. We are seeking local knowledge on the area to improve already selected treatments.
