[PRO] Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection Upgrade

Post by Norman »

Yep, sounds like the design Nick Xenephon proposed last year has been given the green light.
Dog-leg “dog’s breakfast” intersection on Goodwood Rd to be abolished

ONE of Adelaide’s most disruptive dogleg intersections will cease to exist from next year, to be replaced by a new design by the Transport Department.

The Advertiser can today reveal plans for the intersection of Goodwood, Springbank and Daws roads, which will be joined up in one traffic-light controlled intersection.

The “realignment” project, which is yet to be finally costed, will put an end to the dogleg delay for east-west traffic on Daws and Springbank roads. Last year, costs for the project were estimated at $30 million.

Currently, vehicles must stop once to enter Goodwood Rd and then again to exit. The realignment will allow motorists to move directly across Goodwood Rd through one set of traffic lights.

Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan said the end of the two staggered T-junctions would streamline traffic flow, reduce congestion and improve safety.

“Extensive public consultation will be undertaken including doorknocking, one-on-one meetings, mail-outs, phone and email inquiry lines and direct contact with stakeholders and interest groups,” he said. Mr Mullighan said the design may change after public consultation.

The current redesign will significantly disrupt the Bedford site on the southeast side of the intersection. The group is working with the Government on the project.

Transport Department illustrations show about a quarter of the Bedford site built over as Springbank Rd is diverted to the south.

The organisation is one of SA’s oldest charities, providing employment and training opportunities for disabled people for more than 120 years.

Bedford chief executive Sally Powell said the organisation was moving into formal negotiations with the Government on the design.

She said Bedford had already indicated it had outgrown its site and was happy to move, with the right compensation to be determined.

The organisation moved to the site in 1949 and was keen to minimise the disruption to its clients if it moved, she said.

“We have been working with the State Government for some time and the works have converged with us outgrowing the site quite nicely,’’ she said.

State Government figures show on average more than 60,000 vehicles a day travel through the two intersections, with 21 crashes resulting in 24 casualties between 2012 and 2016.

Elected members from across the political divide have called for an end to the traffic chaos at the intersections.

Way long overdue. A very welcome and significant improvement on the current configuration. There's a lot of dog leg intersections that need fixing around the metropolitan area. Let's hope this is the start of one of many. Marion / Holbrooks Road - I'm looking at you.

Yes but where does that end Shuz? Fix up Marion / Holbrook and the problem still exits at Grange/Holbrook/East ave. which then leads to East/Port/ David terrace. These are all 1 lane residential roads, and were never intended for a main through route.

I'm slightly surprised they're doing it that way rather than realigning Daws Road.

But either way it's long overdue, and I'm glad thry're getting round to it at last.

So what purpose does the extension of Springbank to goodwood along the current roax serve?

Why wouldn't they get rid of it? Or if it is for left turns making in narrower?

I wondered that too. May guess is what you suggested and maybe to maintain access to some properties on the corner there. I do hope it's narrowed and the open space expanded.

What a con job this state and fed gov is. This road had money in the budget and the current State Gov took it out. Now the libs are trying to make claim that they have an idea on fixing this road. What the?

This shows how bad a gov they are, as it’s still on their own website. 🤦‍♂️

What nothing built in SA vote Liberal! Unless it’s a hotel....(just another place for Olsen to stay at, like his two freebie Glenelg appartments that he got as part of that development... 🤭

Um, from their website.

The former State Labor Government promised us this problem would be fixed. Yet there was no specific allocation in their last budget and only an ‘artists impression’ had been released.

That is so wrong. It was allocated and Lucas took it out of the budget. She needs to ask her own side what happened to the money. Where did it go? A hotel maybe? 🤔🧐

My favourite Flint moment was leading up to the second leadership spill last year, when she posted a status on Facebook along the lines of being above playing politics and was only concerned about her constituents... her name turned out to be something like sixth on the petition for a second spill lmao

Interesting question and I've found an interesting answer.

It was certainly included in the Overview of the 2017-18 Budget (page 12): http://servicesa.cdn.on.net/budget20171 ... erview.pdf

However, it did not appear in the Budget Measures Statement: http://servicesa.cdn.on.net/budget20171 ... tement.pdf
