Safety for motorists on RM Williams Way will soon be improved with shoulder sealing and delineation works at the Orroroo ‘S bend’ located approximately two kilometres southeast of Orroroo commencing Monday, 15 February 2016.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the works will include providing a two metre wide sealed shoulder on the outside curves and the installation of raised reflective pavement markers and chevron alignment markers.

Providing sealed shoulders will improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘run-off road’ type crashes.

Raised reflective pavement markers and chevron alignment markers will also improve awareness of the curves, particularly at night.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users. The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday.

The road will remain open, with traffic restricted to one lane under traffic control when required and a 25 km/h speed restriction while workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.

These works are expected to be completed by April 2016, weather permitting.

The $230 000 safety initiative is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important works are undertaken.
