Goodwood, Springbank and Daws Road Intersection Upgrade

About the project

Goodwood Road is one of southern Adelaide’s major north-south arterial routes, with Springbank Road and Daws Road providing a key east-west connection. The current layout of two staggered T-junctions severely slows the flow of traffic, creates congestion and causes safety risks.

On average more than 60,000 vehicles a day travel through this location and there have been 21 crashes between 2012 and 2016, resulting in 24 casualties.

The proposed realignment of the current staggered T-junctions, to create a standard 4-way cross intersection, will create a more efficient intersection and eliminate much of the blocking of through traffic that characterises the current layout.

The proposed Goodwood, Springbank and Daws Road intersection upgrade would:

  • Realign the two staggered T-junctions, Goodwood Road/Springbank Road and Goodwood Road/Daws Road, to create a standard 4-way cross intersection.
  • Improve the flow and efficiency of traffic through one of Adelaide’s most congested intersections.
  • Improve safety for all road users at this location.
  • Remove the need for multiple turning movements for east-west traffic travelling between Springbank Road and Daws Road.

What’s happened to date?

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) has been working towards a preliminary concept for the upgrade to increase traffic flow, alleviate congestion and improve safety at this location.
