PROJECT OVERVIEW

In the 2015-16 Budget, the State Government announced $55 million for the construction of the Gawler East Link Road (GELR) Project. In February 2018, Bardavcol were announced as the successful Tenderer for the design and construct contract with DPTI. Construction commenced in late 2018, following substantial design works, and works are expected to be completed within 2020.

The GELR will:

  • Support planned residential development in the Gawler East Development Area, as identified in the 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide, the Gawler Growth Areas Transport Framework 2009 and the Town of Gawler Development Plan
  • Provide traffic with direct access to Main North Road without travelling through the Gawler town centre, reducing travel times, reducing the likelihood of crashes and cutting the vehicle emissions caused by travel delays
  • Provide economic and social benefits for Town of Gawler residents and support local jobs over the life of the project.

Following an intensive review process to consolidate and consider all findings, issues and opportunities, it was determined the best outcome for the Gawler East Link Road is to follow the State Government (DPTI) Alignment.
