About the project

The Australian and South Australian Governments have jointly (50:50) committed $35 million to upgrade the Glen Osmond Road and Fullarton Road intersection. The project is expected to support approximately 50 jobs per year, averaged over the life of the construction period.

The Australian Government’s commitment is part of the Commonwealth Urban Congestion Fund. The South Australian Government’s commitment was announced as part of the 2019-2020 State Budget, to bust congestion by upgrading a number of Metropolitan intersections.

Once complete, the upgrade will improve travel times and road safety, increase intersection capacity and enhance network reliability.

Construction has begun at this location, with the new intersection expected to be opened to traffic in late 2022, weather permitting.

    Updated concept design

    The proposed concept design has been updated following consultation with the community and key stakeholders between 3 December 2020 and 14 June 2021.

    Please note, this is an artist's impression for illustrative purposes only and not a final design.

    The proposed treatments for the Glen Osmond Road and Fullarton Road Intersection Upgrade include :

    • widening of Fullarton Road to provide an additional (third) dedicated through traffic lane on each side of Fullarton Road through the intersection;
    • widening on Glen Osmond Road to provide an additional (second) dedicated right turn lane from Glen Osmond Road onto Fullarton Road for traffic to travel north;
    • widening on Glen Osmond Road to provide a longer right turn lane for traffic turning onto Fullarton Road to travel southbound;
    • relocating and indenting Bus Stop 5 on Glen Osmond Road east of the intersection;
    • removal of the right turn lanes on Fullarton Road travelling into Glen Osmond Road (right turn movements to be prohibited at all times);
    • a sheltered right turn lane will be provided on Fullarton Road at the junction with Campbell Road. An alternate route for vehicles travelling south along Fullarton Road wanting to access the Arkaba Medical Centre via Campbell Road and Collins Street;
    • Installation of traffic signals at the junction of Glen Osmond Road and Main Avenue, which will incorporate a sheltered right turn lane from Glen Osmond Road. Realignment of Main Avenue to relocate the junction at Glen Osmond Road approximately 50 – 60 metres south-east from its current location;
    • removal of right turn movement out of Frewville Foodland and Arkaba Hotel;
    • relocation and upgrade of the existing Pedestrian Actuated (push button) Crossing on Glen Osmond Road;
    • Installation of Pedestrian Actuated (push button) Crossing on Fullarton Road (south of the intersection), opposite the Woolworths carpark, between Hone Street and Campbell Road to improve pedestrian safety and connectivity;
    • new pavement construction and surfacing;
    • new and upgraded traffic signals;
    • LED road lighting for the extent of the works; and
    • new line marking and drainage.

    COVID-19 Response

    The Department will continue to tailor community engagement opportunities in line with the latest COVID-19 advice from health authorities.

    Face-to-face engagement opportunities may be restricted and we will continue to be guided by the advice of health authorities, with the health and safety of our stakeholders always our highest priority.

    Engagement with community and industry is crucial and we will facilitate information sessions as much as possible to enable face to face engagement.  It is important to assist in managing these events that you register as requested to enable physical distancing as much as possible.

    What’s next?

    Civil works

    Preliminary works, including site clearing, property demolition works, and survey set out will continue throughout this period. A second site compound will also be established on the corner of Glen Osmond Road and Main Avenue in the coming weeks. Major drainage and road construction works will commence in mid-2022.

    Service relocation works

    These works include the relocation of power, telecommunications, water and gas services. While the majority of these works are being undertaken during the day, some night works are required to ensure the works can be undertaken safely and efficiently. Night works for service relocations will continue until June 2022, and will be undertaken between 7pm and 6am, Sunday to Friday (including public holidays). There will be no night works undertaken on Saturdays.

    Temporary bus stop changes

    To safely facilitate works, there will be some temporary relocations and closures of bus stops around the intersection. Advance notice of any temporary changes will be provided via Project Updates, at the bus stops and on the Adelaide Metro  website www.adelaidemetro.com.au
