The Hove Railway Crossing has been a long standing problem in our community. It is one of the biggest concerns raised in my local area and it causes congestion and delays for motorists on a daily basis.
With over 34,000 vehicles using Brighton Road on a daily basis, it is one of Adelaide's busiest roads but it is blocked by boom gates for 20% of the peak travel time.
As the local Member and Minister for Transport, I have worked hard with the Federal Member for Boothby, Nicolle Flint MP and my parliamentary state colleague, Member for Black, Hon David Speirs MP in addressing this issue and finding a solution.
It is with great pleasure that Nicolle and I have secured $171 million from the State and Federal Governments to fund the grade separation of the Hove Railway Crossing at Brighton Road. This is a major win for our community and a giant step forward to fixing traffic congestion and improving safety along the Brighton Road Corridor.
It is my aim to work closely with my community and provide updates on this project as we begin the journey to Fix Hove Crossing, much like I have done with my Fix Oaklands Crossing e-news updates and website.
To receive updates about Fix Brighton Road as the project unfolds, please register your email here, or phone my office on (08) 8377 3500 and mention “Fix Brighton Road - Hove Crossing”.
What a brilliant outcome for our community and thanks to Nicolle and David for their help and support.
