PETITION To the Honourable the Members of the House of Assembly in Parliament assembled – The Petition of the undersigned residents of the Onkaparinga Council Area and greater South Australia. Argument We draw the attention of your Honourable House the great inconvenience and danger suffered by the residents living in the suburbs from Christies Beach to Aldinga who use the arterial corridor DysonRoad/Murray Road/Gawler Street, Gray Street/Saltfleet Street/Commercial Road. This thoroughfare, deemed by the Department of Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (DTEI) as a Secondary arterial road (A road that caters for significant volumes of through traffic within and between regions.) is not coping with the volumes of traffic using it. The infrastructure has not grown with the population. Traffic along this secondary arterial road is so congested that traffic is bumper to bumper travelling at a crawl in the mornings and evenings. It is virtually impossible to enter the roadway during the hours of 5.00 to 6.00 pm on a week day due to the large volume of traffic. This situation has lead to a number of impatient drivers taking risks with their safety and that of others just to access these roads. This dangerous situation must be rectified before someone is killed! Request Your petitioners therefore request that your Honourable House will urge the Government to take immediate action to: • construct a double lane carriageway in both directions on Commercial Road. • construct a new road bridge in conjunction with the rail bridge across the Onkaparinga River to divert traffic away from Murray Road, Gawler Street and Saltfleet Street. • construct a double lane carriageway in both directions on Seaford Road from Commercial Road to South Road to aid access to the Southern Expressway.
