This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 11 December 2019 to 7 January 2020. Below is a record of the consultation.

We are seeking your feedback on the Flagstaff Road Upgrade project.  

What’s being decided?

We are in the planning and design stage of our Flagstaff Road Upgrade project and we are seeking your views to help inform the development of the preferred design concept.

For 800 metres of its overall 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.

An additional lane will be installed as a permanent two-way dual carriageway. This map highlights the scope of works and location of the Flagstaff Road Upgrade project.

Once complete, it is expected that the upgrade will:

  • Reduce traffic congestion
  • Reduce confusion
  • Improve efficiency and safety for motorists travelling on Flagstaff Road
  • Provide room to overtake slow-moving traffic
  • Allow emergency vehicles to proceed without being held up by other traffic

Community and stakeholder engagement is an important part of the planning process and as planning progresses consultation with residents, land owners and business owners will occur to help inform and develop the preferred concept and design.

Get involved

To have your say:

Please note that submissions will not be responded to between COB Tuesday 24 December 2019 and 9am Monday 6 January 2020.

How can your input influence the project?

All feedback and concerns will be considered as the project team continues through the design process to identify a preferred solution that balances the needs of the project’s various stakeholders.

What are the next steps?

Further consultation will occur throughout the planning and design phase, which will conclude in 2020.
