Road Upgrades
in the Mitcham Hills

The Marshall Liberal Government is working with the Federal Government to deliver $40 million in road upgrades through Belair, Blackwood and Coromandel Valley.

What we said we'd do

Invest $20 million into the Mitcham Hills Road network to address urgent infrastructure needs, including improvements to the Blackwood roundabout.

What we've done

Together with the Federal Government, the Marshall Liberal Government is delivering $40 million in upgrades to the Mitcham Hills Road network.

We have already upgraded the Blackwood roundabout, making it safer and creating better traffic flow.

Now we are improving Old Belair Road, fixing the Old Belair Road/James Road T-junction and upgrading Shepherds Hill Road/Brighton Parade/Waite Street and Russell Street/Main Road/ Sheaok Road junctions.

Tens of thousands of vehicles pass through these intersections every day and there were 50 crashes on Old Belair Road in just four years. We can’t fix the entire road network overnight but we are getting on with the job of delivering vital road and safety upgrades in a staged manner and in consultation with local communities.

This project is part of our record $17.9 billion Building What Matters infrastructure program which is creating thousands of jobs and improving the lives of South Australians.
