New Mount Barker Freeway Interchange

It has been several months now since the opening of the second Freeway Interchange for Mount Barker and it is timely to have a quick look at its impact.

Key effects seem to be:

  • Less traffic congestion in the Littlehampton main street during peak commute & school drop off & pick up times.
  • Reduced accidents at the Old Princes Highway – Bald Hills Road intersection.
  • Improved traffic flows on Bald Hills Road.
  • Less congestion on Adelaide Road Mount Barker at peak times..
  • Less traffic from the direction of Murray Bridge queuing at the initial Freeway Interchange as they tried to turn right across the flow of traffic.
  • The section of Adelaide Road between Gawler Street & the entrance into Mount Barker is still congested duringĀ  peak commute & school drop off & pick up times but this has been stabilised now.

Overall, the project was well planned, construction was handled professionally & on time and the resulting impact on traffic flows has been of benefit to Mount Barkers residents & visitors.

  1. And it should have been incorporated into the original planning when the freeway first went through- at significantly less cost. Imagine how Mount Barker would look today, John.
