Expressions of interest have been called for $3.5 million Blackwood roundabout upgrade, as well as various other road upgrades.

The upgrade will reduce the risk of collisions and cut delays for approximately 30,000 vehicles which travel through the roundabout each day.

The Blackwood Roundabout is located at the junction of Main Road, Shepherds Hill Road, Coromandel Parade and Station Road in Blackwood.

The roundabout is one of more than 20 road infrastructure projects that will be completed in the greater Adelaide metropolitan area through the package of works that includes:

  • $4.4 million Bridge Road/Maxwell Road intersection upgrade
  • $4.2 million Payneham Road/O.G. Road intersection upgrade
  • $1.3 million Regency Road/Churchill Road intersection upgrade

The program of works also includes upgrades to the Main North Road/Dalkeith Road intersection and the intersections of Fitzroy Terrace with Prospect Road and Main North Road.

A number of other upgrade projects on metropolitan roads will also be completed as part of the works.

Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Mullighan spoke of the State Government’s investment in road infrastructure projects.

“The State Government is investing more than half a billion dollars in road maintenance and safety upgrades over four years including a $110m stimulus package for more than 185 critical projects, supporting more than 300 jobs.

“These projects make our arterial roads safer and more efficient for all road users, and help to ensure traffic flows more smoothly.”
