Call For Tulloch intersection Upgrade

Inaction in relation to fixing the Tulloch / Main North Road Intersection at Evanston has spurred local Member of Parliament, Tony Piccolo to instigate a petition calling for an immediate upgrade.

Mr Piccolo spent Saturday morning at the Gawler Green Shopping Centre asking locals to raise their voices and join the call to improve the intersection.

Mr Piccolo said that he choose to use the shopping centre as many of the customers are frustrated by the intersection.

“I was told time and again by people that they just cannot turn right onto Main North Road from Tulloch Road, people can’t even access Aldi after shopping at Gawler Green,” Mr Piccolo said.

“I first raised this issue with the Council when Bunnings submitted their development application.

“It was clear that the intersection would become a mess if the developers were not required to contribute to infrastructure improvements, unfortunately, Council and the State Government did not listen at that time.

“Much to my dismay the Council nor the State Government listen when I raised the issue again when Aldi submitted their development application,” he said.

The Gawler East Link Road will significantly reduce the amount of through traffic along Main North Road when completed.

Mr Piccolo advised that he has met with both the Transport and Infrastructure Minister Mullighan and Treasurer Koutsantonis requesting that the State Government contribute to the upgrading the intersection as a part of the Gawler East Link Road project.

“I’m asking people to sign this petition to make their voices heard, so that the Government knows that it is not just me asking for the upgrade, but it is the entire Gawler community,” Mr Piccolo said.

“So far 340 people have signed the petition,” he said.
