Project Description

The City of Playford (Council) has identified Laverstock Road, Elizabeth North, as a location that would benefit from the implementation of traffic control devices. Anecdotal evidence from residents indicates that vehicles travel at excessive speed down this road and the tyre marks on the road indicate that this is a location where motorists drive in a deliberately dangerous manner. Traffic counts undertaken by Council, have recorded the 85th percentile to be 56.5km/h and 58 km/h in either direction, however there were a number of vehicles recorded throughout the day to be in excess of 100km/h in each direction.

Two Intersection Rearrangements at consecutive intersections were indicated as the best treatment at this location. The proposed arrangement would provide two Intersection Rearrangements at the intersections of Minchington Road and Brixton Road with Laverstock Road. The Intersection rearrangements involve the construction of concrete protuberances and median to slow vehicular traffic and re-direct their path through the intersection, as well as associated lighting upgrade and linemarking.
