Prior to an upgrade in the 1990s, Tapleys Hill Road's southern end was joined to Anzac Highway about 100 metres to the west of where it currently lays. The upgrade involved re-aligning the roadway, and taking Tapleys Hill Road to Brighton Road's northern end, removing congestion in a busy area. The old roadway still exists, now named as Old Tapleys Hill Road, and is rarely used as a through route, servicing mainly residents of the area.
Tapleys Hill, on which the Victoria Hotel stands, was named for Thomas Tapley (1789–1856) who arrived in South Australia aboard the Rajahstan in November 1838 and took up land in that location, which however bears little relation to the current road.
Route A15 has its northern end at Port Road and includes Tapleys Hill Road. It continues past the sotuthern end of Tapleys Hill Road on Brighton Road, then Ocean Boulevard, Lonsdale Road and Dyson Road. It continues through Port Noarlunga on parts of Murray Road, Gawler Street, Gray Street, Saltfleet Street and Commercial Road.
