The A11 was the original road from Adelaide into the Torrens Valley and was notoriously awful (the Gorge Road was constructed to bypass Anstey's Hill on LOwer North East Rd). Previously unnumbered, it gained the A11 designation in 1998. Lower North East Road was expanded to dual carriageways as far east as Torrens Road in Highbury during the early 1980s - completed in 1983.
