The $174 million Oaklands Crossing Grade Separation Project in South Australia has been officially completed.
The Oaklands Crossing Project is intended to improve the safety of all road users and will ease traffic congestion with the lowering the rail line under the road and removing the level crossing at the intersection of Morphett and Diagonal roads.
On average almost 42,000 vehicles use Morphett Road south of the Oaklands Crossing each day. North of the crossing, an average of 33,200 vehicles use Diagonal Road and 8,700 use Morphett Road.
The project has delivered a 23 per cent improvement in travel times in the AM peak and 25 per cent improvement in the PM peak for commuters on Diagonal and Morphett roads.
Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population, Alan Tudge, said removing the level crossing had made a huge difference to motorists in the area.
“The Oaklands Crossing project has been busting congestion and slashing travel time for eight weeks now.
“And there is plenty more to come in Adelaide and South Australia with billions invested in infrastructure by the Morrison Government to get everyone home sooner and safer.”
Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government, Stephan Knoll, said the completion of this congestion busting project was excellent news but there was more in the pipeline.
“The Marshall Government has built an $11.9 billion pipeline of infrastructure works over the next four years so there’s still a lot of congestion busting construction to come.”
“We will keep building South Australia to deliver better roads, cut travel times and build a stronger economy.”
Member for Boothby, Nicolle Flint, said that the completion of the project signalled the end of over four decades of frustration and traffic delays for the local community.
“After 40 long years, Oaklands Crossing is finally fixed for my community and I am so proud to have been the first MP to have ever secured a funding commitment to deliver this important project.
