Tender for Golden Grove Road Upgrade Project

The Marshall Government has released a tender for construction of Stage One of the $20 million Golden Grove Road upgrade.

The State Government is delivering on its important election commitment to upgrade the 3.4-kilometre section of Golden Grove Road between One Tree Hill Road and Park Lake Drive.

The project will be delivered in two stages, with Stage One works from One Tree Hill Road to the signalised intersection of Golden Grove Road/The Grove Way/Yatala Vale Road.

Stage Two involves an upgrade from Park Lake Drive to the signalised intersection of Golden Grove Road/The Grove Way/Yatala Vale Road.

Main construction works for Stage One, are expected to commence late 2019, and be completed in mid-2020.

“The Marshall Government is getting on with this important project and we have now gone out to tender to get shovels in the ground as soon as possible,” said Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll.

“While some local councils want to play partisan politics, this government is focused on getting the job done and fixing this road as soon as possible.

“This upgrade will include the construction of a new roundabout at the junction of Golden Grove Road and Hancock Road, sheltered right hand turn lanes at various points, indented bus bays, as well as improved pedestrian and cycling facilities.”

The project will also include kerbing, drainage, road resurfacing, as well as new and upgraded road lighting.

Member for King, Paula Luethen said the community has been calling for these safety upgrades for many years and the Marshall Government was delivering on its election commitment.

“This upgrade will make a difference in the day-to-day lives of local residents, keeping both motorists and pedestrians safe,” said Ms Luethen.

“This will also bust congestion, meaning motorists spend less time stuck in traffic, and more time doing the things that matter.

“I’m proud to be part of a Marshall Liberal Government that is fixing this long-time problem and listening to the voices of the local community that were ignored under 16 years of Labor on this issue.”
