The State Government has proposed works on the Greenhill Road median strip to improve safety. In Wayville, the side streets impacted are Joslin and Clark. There will no longer be right turns in or out of these streets. From Joslin and Clark Streets at Greenhill Road, only left-in and left-out will be allowed.
This will impact the Wayville residents.
Residents are encouraged to provide feedback to the State Government by 17 March 2014.
Unley Council has provided feedback with emphasis on safety issues of the proposal for vehicles to do U-turns on Greenhill Road in order to then turn left into Joslin or Clark Street.

Have Your Say - Safety Improvements to Greenhill RoadThe Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure has released a draft scheme to improve safety on Greenhill Road, between Goodwood Road and George Street/Hutt Road.
The scheme will improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians and involves:
- Modifying and extending the existing median openings to provide one way indented U-turn areas
- Installing shared bike and pedestrian refuges opposite Roberts Street, Joslin Street, Clark Street and Porter Street
- Improving landscaping.
This section of Greenhill Road has a higher than expected number of crashes causing injury. Between 2007 and 2011 there were 66 injury crashes.
One of the key actions of the Road Safety Strategy: Towards Zero Together is to improve safety of infrastructure at locations with the highest volumes or greatest risk of crashes. The investment in safety focused infrastructure (ie, banning right turns, installing U-turn lane extensions and median extensions on busy arterial roads) provides ongoing safety benefits to the community at often more than 10 times the original cost.
The scheme includes installing new cycling/pedestrian crossings at Joslin Street, Clark Street, Roberts Street and Porter Street. These complement the existing Unley and Adelaide City Council bicycle and pedestrian networks.
