Larapinta / Lovegrove Drive intersection upgrades

The Northern Territory Government recently commissioned a review of traffic flow and safety issues raised by the community at the intersection of Larapinta and Lovegrove Drive, Alice Springs. 

A detailed intersection upgrade options analysis was conducted and a single lane roundabout was recommended to Government.


Once complete, the project will reduce delays for all intersection approaches including Lovegrove Drive turning traffic.

Project timeline

The project is due for completion late June 2016.

Current works

Works are progressing well on the construction of a new single lane roundabout at the Larapinta Drive / Lovegrove Drive Intersection.

As advised in Resident Update #4, the majority of services have now been relocated.

Project scope

Works involve:

  • construction of a single lane roundabout
  • asphalt resurfacing of Larapinta Drive from the intersection of Memorial Avenue
  • relocation of footpaths and services
  • improvements to lighting and landscaping.
