Glen Osmond Road is a major state Highway 1 road in the city of Adelaide, South Australia.[1] Connecting the Adelaide city centre with the Adelaide Hills via the South Eastern Freeway; Glen Osmond Road carries half of Adelaide's freight traffic[citation needed][clarification needed] and is the major commuter route from the southern Adelaide Hills. It has intersections at Greenhill Road, Fullarton Road, Cross Road and Portrush Road.

Glen Osmond Road houses a strip shopping precinct on the section between Greenhill and Fullarton Roads.[2] The precinct is largely populated by independent boutiques. It is a community main street stationed in the leafy suburbs of Adelaide’s south east. It was earlier known as "The Gateway" because of its connection between the Adelaide CBD and Hills.
