Project Overview

On 10 November 2020, the State Government announced an additional $25 million in funding over two years for the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride, bringing total funding for the project to $33 million.

The aim of the project is to meet demand for Park ‘n’ Ride commuters and to increase public transport usage.

The existing Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride is located on The Grove Way and currently contains 177 ground-level, off-street parking spaces for commuters accessing O-Bahn bus services.

The new Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride will comprise three levels of parking (ground floor plus two upper levels) and when complete will provide 450 car parking spaces, which will include ten Disability Discrimination Act 1992, compliant car parks and provision for secure bicycle storage. The new Park ‘n’ Ride will be constructed on the site of the existing car park and its surrounds.

Works for the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride Project commenced Wednesday, 17 February 2021, with project completion expected in early 2022, weather permitting.

Upcoming works

Upcoming works

With the concrete poured for the three levels of the Park ‘n’ Ride, the focus of the works for the remainder of the year will be the upgrade of the new 4-way intersection at Marie Clarke Drive and The Grove Way, construction of the access road around the Park ‘n’ Ride, and construction of the building façade.

During November, December and January the following works will occur:

  • installation of balustrade and fitting out the staircases;
  • ongoing installation of the building façade;
  • installation of the internal building services;
  • installation of safety barriers;
  • continuing road works on The Grove Way;
  • installation of bus shelters;
  • footpath works;
  • works on the access road around the Park ‘n ’Ride; and
  • commencement of landscaping works.

To safely undertake these works, speed and lane restrictions will be in place during the works. Works will generally be undertaken Monday to Saturday, from 7am to 6pm, however some lane and speed restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day for safety reasons. Please plan ahead, allow extra travel time and take extra care when workers are on site. Observe speed limits, lane restrictions and traffic controllers when travelling through the area.

Some noise disturbance can be expected at times while these works are completed, however the work will be managed to minimise disturbance to nearby residents and businesses as much as practically possible.

Pedestrian detours

Some temporary pedestrian detours will be in place around the works site and pedestrians are advised to follow directional signage. Every effort will be made to minimise impacts to the community.

Works on the eastern side of The Grove Way will require the closure of the footpath from Goodwin Circuit to The Grove Way, alternative access is available via Marie Clarke Drive.

Access to businesses and residential properties will be maintained at all times.

Temporary relocation of bus stop

To enable these works to be undertaken safely, bus stop 62A east has been temporarily relocated within 50 metres north.

Temporary car parking

From 17 February 2021, access to the existing Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride has been closed to the public for the duration of construction.

A temporary car park opened from Tuesday, 27 April 2021, for Park 'n' Ride commuters to use, located adjacent to the SA Districts Netball Association. It can be accessed via Atlantis Drive, Golden Grove, please view map below for details.

If you previously used the accessible car parking at the old Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride facility, please contact the project team directly using the contact details below to discuss alternative car parking options.

Bus services

To enable the safe construction of the new car park, Bus stop 62A west on The Grove Way has been temporarily relocated, approximately 50 metres north of its previous location.

Please be advised that bus routes C2X and A01 (City to Greenwith) will no longer be stopping at Bus Stop 62A west-side of The Grove Way, from Saturday, 8 May 2021. Instead, please board or exit at Bus Stop 62 The Grove Way, or Bus Stop 64 The Golden Way (see map below).

Bus stop 62A east-side of The Grove Way is still serviced by C2X and A01 (Greenwith to City).

This change is expected to continue until completion of the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride Project in early 2022.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Adelaide Metro Team on 1300 311 108.

Landscaping

The Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride Project provides an opportunity to enhance the existing amenity of the area with the provision of new landscaping. Plant species will be carefully selected to make sure they are suitable for the surrounding area.

The landscaping for the project includes:

  • more than 30 trees, including 6 different species;
  • over 2300 ground covers and grasses, including 10 different species; and
  • over 170 shrubs, of 11 different species.

Landscaping works will not commence until later in the project to ensure the plants aren’t damaged during construction works.

To view the species of plants selected for the landscaping please view the landscaping palette below.

Design features

A new access road will be constructed around the Park ‘n’ Ride to allow for vehicle access to and from the Park ‘n’ Ride from the north and south. This new road will also provide access to the new Kiss ‘n’ Go spaces and to the North East Hockey Club.

Kiss ‘n’ Go spaces will be provided at the south-east corner of the Park ‘n’ Ride near the bus stop and in the south-west corner of the new access road, adjacent to the Golden Grove High School. The Kiss ‘n’ Go spaces will provide a safe place, off the access road, for vehicles to pull over and commuters and school students to exit at the footpath that will lead to the bus stop on The Grove Way and also to Golden Grove High School.

Access to the North East Hockey Club will be provided via a new driveway connected from the new Park ‘n’ Ride access road. The Hockey Club will be accessed from the north or south access roads off The Grove Way. The southern access road provides an alternative entry and exit to The Grove Way via a signalised intersection. Please see the plan below for more details.

Intersection upgrade

To allow safe entry and exit to the Park ‘n’ Ride, Kiss ‘n’ Go and the Hockey Club, the junction of Marie Clarke Drive and The Grove Way will be upgraded to become a 4-way signalised intersection. The upgrade will include the addition of a fourth road providing access to the Park ‘n’ Ride, with one lane in and two lanes out. It will also include an additional right turn lane for south bound vehicles from The Grove Way.

Open flow design

The design for the Park 'n' Ride allows for an open and well-ventilated structure. The façade of the structure is made up of perforated aluminium panels that allow for natural air flow as well as the ability to see in and out the structure. The ground floor of the structure is also very open with wide walkways.
