Project overview

The Australian and South Australian governments have committed a total of $685 million to fund the Fleurieu Connections Main South Road and Victor Harbor Road duplication projects. These projects will be delivered by the Fleurieu Connections Alliance. These projects will result in safer and faster journeys for motorists and provide a vital boost for local tourism, communities and support hundreds of jobs each year during construction.

Victor Harbor Road Duplication - Stage 1

Main South Road to McLaren Vale

Victor Harbor Road, between Main South Road and the McLaren Vale turn off, will be duplicated with additional safety treatments along Victor Harbor Road (including an overtaking lane at Hindmarsh Valley).

Planning Study

A planning study is also being undertaken, to investigate the preferred solution for Victor Harbor Road between Main Road, McLaren Vale and Tatachilla Road and to Willunga Hill.

Stakeholder and community engagement forms an important part of this Planning Study.

In February 2022, a survey was distributed seeking feedback and 223 responses were received. Key issues and comments focused on:

  • safety of access onto Victor Harbor Road from side roads and private properties;
  • east-west connections and ensuring connectivity for landowners and residents;
  • freight access, particularly in relation to the wine industry; and
  • protection of cultural heritage and native vegetation.

This feedback is currently being considered and will be used to help inform concept plans and treatment options. Further engagement with the community will occur in the coming months.
