Main North Road, Kings and McIntyre Roads Intersection Upgrade

About the project

The Australian and South Australian Governments jointly funded $13 million (50:50) to upgrade the Main North Road, Kings and McIntyre Roads Intersection.

Main North Road is a major traffic and freight route that connects the northern parts of metropolitan Adelaide with Adelaide’s Central Business District.

During the five-year period between 2014 and 2019 there were 77 reported crashes at the intersection including 27 casualty crashes.

Major construction works for the intersection upgrade commenced in January 2021, and were completed in September 2021.

The project included:

  • widening of Main North Road, with the installation of an additional right turn lane into McIntyre Road, and three through lanes heading north on Main North Road;
  • installation of additional through lane on Main North Road between Freda Thompson Place and Kings Road (north-east bound);
  • installation of additional through lane on Main North Road between McIntyre Road and Kesters Road (south-west bound);
  • extension of dual right turn lanes heading north-east from McIntyre Road onto Main North Road Road;
  • separation of left turn traffic from Main North Road onto Kings Road and left turn traffic from Kings Road onto Lawrence Hargrave Way;
  • new and upgraded pedestrian ramps and footpaths around the intersection;
  • dedicated bicycle lanes on both approaches of Main North Road; and
  • new and upgraded traffic signals, road lighting, line marking, and drainage.
