$30 million for Stage Two of the Golden Grove Road Upgrade

Published on October 2020


😃 🚧 We are delivering on our commitment to upgrade Golden Grove Road.

Stage one of the Golden Grove Road upgrade will be completed by the end of this year. I am so excited that Stage two works are commencing.

Whilst our Marshall Liberal Government committed $20 million dollars towards Stage one works, we are committing an additional $30 million dollars towards Stage two works to fully complete the Golden Grove Road upgrade.

That’s $50 million dollars that our local community have fought hard for over many long years which is being invested into the Golden Grove Road Upgrade to create local jobs and build the critical local infrastructure.

Whilst Stage one works have created 65 local jobs, I can say with excitement that the Stage two works will be creating an additional 70 local jobs.

Stage 2 works will focus on Golden Grove Road between Kunzea Way and Park Lake Drive.

Intersections will be upgraded to ease congestion and reduce bus travel times on the road. We will work to improve traffic flow with additional through lanes on Golden Grove Road and turning lanes.

Stage two involves upgrades including;

  • Golden Grove Road / The Grove Way / Yatala Vale Road signalised intersection upgrade with;
  • Second right turn lane from The Grove Way approach;
  • Second through lanes on Golden Grove Road approaches;
  • Protected right turn lane at Highgrove Road junction;
  • On-road bike lanes in each direction;
  • Kerb and gutter, drainage, road resurfacing, as well as new and upgraded road lighting.
  • Improved pedestrian facilities including new footpath and pedestrian crossing facilities; and
  • Indented bus bays.

In more good news to share with our community, CATCON which is a local business which does employ many local people have secured the second stage of the $30 million-dollar Stage 2 Golden Grove Road Upgrade.

Thank you to the terrific work of David Baker, Nathan King, George Panagopoulas and Surinder from CATCON and the DIT team.

The Golden Grove Road Upgrade means More Jobs and Better Services for our local community. We are also backing local businesses with this upgrade.

This is all part of the Marshall Liberal Government’s $12.9 billion dollar State wide infrastructure build and investment.
