Turn Left on Red Community Survey

Published on 07 September 2020


Thank you very much to those of you in our King Electorate that have submitted your feedback to me on which intersections you would like me to advocate for as a 'Turn Left On Red' intersection.

The feedback and recommendations I have received from you suggest that there is large community support in favour of installing ‘Left Turn on Red Permitted After Stopping,’ at specific intersections.

There was large feedback of the following intersections in particular and I am seeking your feedback on whether or not you would like me to advocate further to the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Corey Wingard on the following intersections:

  • Smith Road and Gloucester Avenue in Salisbury East;
  • The Grove Way and Main North Road in Salisbury Heights;
  • Park Terrace and Main North Road in Salisbury Plain; and;
  • There has also been support of signage at Maria Clark Drive in Golden Grove

You have generally raised with me the issue of faster travel times in support of the above proposals.

Your consideration of these proposals would be appreciated.

If you haven't had the chance to submit your feedback and you have suggestions on other intersections which could be considered then, please do let me know.

If you live in King, could please send me an email to: king@parliament.sa.gov.au with your feedback by Friday the 20th of November so I can then determine the next steps to advocate further for you.

Kind regards, Paula


A new South Australian road rule allows drivers to turn left at any time at selected intersections, even when facing a red light.

🔴 I am looking for your feedback on where else this would work safely in our local King electorate?

On the recommendation of a local I was exploring this possibility at Marie Clark Drive Golden Grove yesterday.

So how do you know if you’re at one of these new intersections?

Easy – under the traffic lights, there’ll be a sign stating, ‘Left Turn on Red Permitted After Stopping’.

As the sign says, you’ll still need to stop at the line and give way to other traffic, cyclists and pedestrians in the intersection – and on the road you’re turning onto – before proceeding.

🔴 Please fill in my community survey below and have your say. Make your suggestion of where this would be safe in our King Electorate!
