Edwards Street connects with Brighton Road and serves as the main access from Brighton Central Shopping Centre and Hungry Jacks Hove, as well as providing direct access from Brighton Road to the Esplanade. It consists of an unsignalised T-junction. This results in large delays due to high volume of traffic use at the intersection resulting in:
- road safety issues at the junction, especially for local access (right turn movements);
- local access reliability issues at the junction, especially during peak periods; and
- local access and safety issues for active travel pedestrian movements at the junction.
This intersection was identified by a number of community members as requiring an upgrade to improve accessibility and safety in the area.
The proposed concept design for the Brighton Road and Edwards Street junction is now available for public feedback until Friday, 8 April 2022. The proposed concept design aims to improve local access and road safety. It can be viewed over the page or via the project website www.dit.sa.gov.au/brightonroad
