Route description

Kings Road crosses the northern suburbs connecting Port Wakefield Road and Main North Road immediately north of Parafield Airport across the southern edge of Salisbury. The western part of Kings Road passes through residential areas and crosses the Little Para River. East of the railway lines, the character changes to industrial manufacturing, and the Parafield Airport.

McIntyre Road continues east of Main North Road with a residential character again. It rises up the face of the Adelaide Hills through a corridor of native bushland and sweeps past the Golden Grove development of the 1980s to North East Road at Modbury. Much of the McIntyre Road corridor was originally reserved as part of the 1960s Metropolitan Adelaide Transport Study (MATS Plan).

History

McIntyre Road was opened in 1989, funded primarily by the Australian Government.

In 2016, the western end of Kings Road was realigned so that instead of it ending at a tee junction with Bolivar Road just short of Port Wakefield Road, the two roads meet at a large roundabout enabling easier traffic flow to and from Kings Road. The Port Wakefield Road terminus is also going to become a crossroad with a new extension to an interchange on the Northern Connector to be completed by 2019. Prior to this alteration, route A18 included 300m of Bolivar Road to connect the end of Kings Road to Port Wakefield Road.
