New traffic lights at Bridge Road/Maxwell Road (paddocks side).

https://www.facebook.com/25188783153020 ... 984714165/
Works are set to start this Monday, 15 April, on a project to install traffic lights at the junction of Bridge Road and Maxwell Road, in Para Hills.

The traffic signals will be installed where Bridge Road meets the western side of Maxwell Road, while right turn lanes on both roads will be duplicated and extended.

Drivers will no longer be able to turn right from the eastern side of Maxwell Road onto Bridge Road, however a new u-turn facility will be constructed on Bridge Road to facilitate this turn.

The works will be carried out between Sunday evening and Saturday morning each week, and are expected to be completed by the end of July, weather permitting. In addition, no work will be undertaken between the morning of Thursday, 18 April, and the evening of Sunday, 28 April, to avoid the Easter and Anzac Day holiday period.

The section of Bridge Road between Beovich and Kesters Roads will also be resurfaced with works planned to occur in May and June.

We thank motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.

I would say another area that needs upgrading is Kings Rd from Salisbury highway to Bolivar Rd it will only get worse with Northern connector traffic along with the section from Bolivar Rd to Liberator drive roundabout all this needs to be duplicated/widened and some roundabouts enlarged or replaced with traffic lights i.e. Liberator Drive intersection.

Whites Road should be reconnected because this will take pressure off of Bolivar Road.

Speed limits should also be 60 on roads such as
- Martins Road between Shepardson Road and Burton Road

- Saints Road

- Cross Keys Road/Fenden Road

- Frost Road/Clayson Road

- Kesters Road

80 kmh Speed limits should be trialled on
- Salisbury Highway and John Rice Avenue
- Philip Highway and Yorktown Road
- Bridge Road
- The Golden Way
- Golden Grove Road
- Main South Road between Reynella and Old Noarlunga

Once the Northern Connector is open I'd like to see Port Wakefield Road between Gepps Cross and Virginia increased to 100kmh

Also increase Main South Road between Darlington and Panalatinga Road to 100kmh

Kings Road is terrible.

The Parafield crossing needs to be grade separated ASAP. But of course its the usual safe Labor seat issue, which means that it won't be an election issue. The crossing actually is the border of Spence and Makin federally.

It needs to be 2 lanes in either direction for the entire length, luckyily there is space for it to be widened after the Salisbury highway. Removing the level crossing would turn it into a pretty good arterial road

After that increase the road to 80kmh between Salisbury Highway and Para Hills

Yes they should do that, but again its a safe Labor seat so they won't get money fast.

Re; Also increase Main South Road between Darlington and Panalatinga Road to 100kmh

If you increase South Rd in this section why would you bother with the Sexy? And South Road at present in this section is already quicker than Sexy in the mornings, even on quiet ones like yesterday.

Left the intersection at Old Reynella as a mate, he drove Sexy, I drove South Road and I arrived at the Flinders drive intersection before him. Most mornings it’s the case.

Also 100 through the bottom section of South Road isn’t going to work. To many crashes now at 80.

Salisbury Highway (north of Mawson Lakes), Phillip Highway and Yorktown Road (below Midway Road) have too many driveways to be appropriate for the higher speed limit.

I'd like to see Macintyre Road dug up and relaid between Montague Road and Golden Way. It's an 80km/h zone, but the surface undulates so much that small cars get thrown around too much to maintain that speed.
