The South Australian Government has announced $32.9 million in funding for the upgrade of Flagstaff Road, between Hyland Avenue and Bonneyview Road, by installing a fourth lane to make it a permanent two-way dual carriageway.
Flagstaff Road is a major arterial road used by more than 25,000 motorists every day to commute to other parts of the city. For 800 metres of its overall 3.3 kilometre length between Hyland Avenue and Bonneyview Road, the road consists of only three lanes. Flow on the centre lane is reversed daily to cope with peak-hour traffic in the mornings and evenings. This is a potential cause of confusion for motorists travelling during these periods and remains a safety concern.
The additional lane will be installed as a permanent two-way dual carriageway to reduce traffic congestion, reduce confusion and improve efficiency and safety for motorists travelling on Flagstaff Road. It will provide room to overtake slow-moving traffic and allow emergency vehicles to proceed without being held up by other traffic.
The contract for detailed planning and design work has been awarded to Aurecon Australasia. Planning has commenced and will conclude in 2020.
