Background

This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 11 December 2019 to 7 January 2020. Find out more about the consultation process.

The Australian Government has announced $73.6 million in funding for the duplication of Victor Harbor Road, between Main South Road and Main Road, McLaren Vale. In addition, the South Australian Government has committed $18.4 million to the project, bringing the total project funding to $92 million.

Approximately 23,000 vehicles use the road each day, including 7% commercial vehicles. Traffic has grown by an approximate annual average of 3% since 2011 and is expected to increase. Between 2014 and 2018 (inclusive) there were 22 casualty crashes.

The McLaren Vale region and outer southern suburbs have seen notable growth in recent years and caters to significant tourism activity primarily related to the iconic wine region and associated viticulture and agriculture industries.

Traffic volumes and crash history between Main South Road and Main Road, McLaren Vale has reached a point where duplication of the road to dual carriageway is warranted to alleviate traffic delays and safety issues.

Detailed planning to ascertain the preferred option to upgrade this road has commenced. The contract for this work, which will conclude in 2020, has been awarded to Aurecon.

Major works are scheduled to start in 2021/22.
