The most immediate fix is to put Marion Road in a trench under ANZAC Highway, the tramline and Cross Road - killing three birds with one stone.

Will finishing the North-South Motorway draw traffic off of Marion Road that has moved over there to avoid the roadworks and incomplete bits?

I imagine that completing the main through route is more important to do first than upgrading a parallel road a few kilometres west.

You'd hope that it will draw traffic away, but we both know that that is many years away.

I agree completely, but was saying that of all fixes (rather than painting some new lines at an intersection), this is the most immediate one that can make a permanent difference.

When did Greenhill Rd (outside of Ring Route) get a road number? I saw a sign saying B26 right before Portrush meets Greenhill. After looking it up on Location SA, I realise some other roads got new numbers:
B28 - Fullarton Rd (from Glen Osmond southwards), Old Belair Rd, James Rd, Upper Sturt Rd, Waverley Ridge Rd, Mt Lofty Summit Rd
B26 - Greenhill Rd (until Balhannah)
B27 - Magill Rd, Old Norton Summit Rd, Lobethal Rd, Mount Torrens Rd

There needs to be a bigger slip lane on the northbound side of Marion Rd at the intersection with Sir Donald Bradman Dr. There's always really bad queuing there.
