General Information:

A16 is a major arterial route that connects the harbour and Port Adelaide area to the northern metropolitan area.

Part of Grand Junction Road is funded by Auslink and classified as part of what used to be known as the National Highway network. That section runs from Hampstead Road at Northfield and travels to South Road at Regency Park. Grand Junction Road was originally known as Junction Road, acquiring its current name from a small settlement that contained a school and an inn and was known as the Grand Junction from at least 1850. The settlement lay at the intersection of the main roads to Adelaide, Port Adelaide and the northern towns of the Adelaide plains. 2
