Road Corridor Planning Studies - We'd Like To Hear From You!

As part of the State Government's $10 million Transport Network Planning Studies Program, the Department is undertaking a series of Road Corridor Planning Studies along six of Adelaide's key road corridors – Payneham Road, Portrush Road, Unley Road, Cross Road, Brighton Road and Main North Road.

We’d like to hear about your experience using these road corridors. Community feedback will enable the planning team to better understand local issues, and can help influence future transport infrastructure projects.

Feedback is open until 9 August 2021.

What is a Road Corridor Planning Study?

A Road Corridor Planning Study looks at:

  • How people live, work, visit and travel along the road corridor;
  • Current challenges with how the road corridor functions; and
  • Potential opportunities to improve the road corridor for all users.

Central to each study is the understanding that roads are not about just about the movement of people and goods, but are also places where people live, work, and visit.

Consideration is given to the current and future needs of a road corridor based on anticipated changes to population and activity in and along the road corridor.  A range of indicators are examined including road safety, travel times, public transport, walking and cycling, land use, heritage, environment and place experience.

At this stage funding is for the planning studies only. The studies will inform the development of a ‘pipeline’ of integrated, evidenced-based potential projects should funding become available.

The Road Corridor Planning Studies form part of the $10 million Transport Network Planning Studies Program which represents a proactive and strategic approach to transport planning.
