Majors Road Upgrade

The South Australian Government has committed $15 million for upgrades along Majors Road, O’Halloran Hill, between the Southern Expressway and Main South Road and between Lonsdale Road, Ocean Boulevard and the Southern Expressway.

Majors Road, located approximately 15 kilometres southwest of the Adelaide CBD is an important arterial road, providing a key connection between Lonsdale Road and Main South Road. It carries an average of 13,200 vehicles per day. The Majors Road Upgrade aims to improve the overall operation and safety of Majors Road and ensure the road caters to current and future traffic demands.

The project for works between Southern Expressway and Main South Road includes:

  • pavement rehabilitation and undulating correction;
  • new access to the Glenthorne National Park;
  • improve connectivity at the Patrick Jonker Veloway (bikeway); and
  • minor road widening for safer merging westbound near Main South Road.

The project will result in safer journeys and provide efficient access to the key adjacent facilities. The project is expected to support 35 full time equivalent jobs during construction.
